Significant work was undertaken during the year to ensure continued financial stability, with health and social care budgets coming under increased pressure. This resulted in a positive net income figure for the year of £0.9m. New grant funding enabled us to expand services in many areas including mental health and epilepsy fieldwork.
With a focus on staff retention, we implemented pay rises across all staff groups for the first time since 2011. This included an increase in line with the Scottish Living Wage to £8.45 per hour. We continued to invest in our management information systems to deliver efficiencies across the organisation.
