More money to tackle delayed discharge

Scottish executive is to spend an additional £20m tackling
delayed discharge from hospitals this year following an
announcement by first minister Jack McConnell.  The funding has been taken from
Scotland’s £86m share of additional health spending
money allocated by chancellor Gordon Brown last November. McConnell
said that the funding would provide up to 1,000 more places
“in more appropriate settings”.
