Dear Lothian NHS Board,

This request is being sent to all Scottish Health Boards and is centred around supporting staff in being able to cycle to work. This has become even more relevant in the past few months where public transport service is greatly reduced and mask wearing is required due to covid-19.

Q1 - Does your board offer staff a version of the government backed cycle to work scheme with it's tax breaks?
Q2 - What value limit is offered to each member of staff joining the scheme to procure a bike?
Q3 - What is the total value financed in each of the last 3 years for bikes?
Q4 - How many individuals have joined the scheme in each of the last 3 years?
Q5 - What is the total workforce head count for each of the last 3 years?

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Crawford

Foi, Lothian NHS Board
