Whole system Capacity Planning


NHS Forth Valley

Capacity planning across settings and services

The outputs have given NHS Forth Valley and the Integrated Joint Boards (IJBs) a better understanding of the capacity requirements in a number of care settings based on a range of scenarios reflecting new ways of working in the delivery of health and social care services.  The outputs will inform the strategic planning approach undertaken by the IJBs.
