Shaping Surgical Services - A proposed transformation of surgical services in Tayside
NHS Tayside is proposing to make changes to where surgeons, doctors and nurses deliver some general surgical procedures in Tayside. The proposed changes are to ensure NHS Tayside can continue to provide sustainable, safe, high-quality surgical services into the future. The proposed changes would mean that all unscheduled general surgical care would take place at Ninewells, allowing more planned procedures at Perth Royal Infirmary.
A public consultation on surgical services at Ninewells Hospital, Perth Royal Infirmary and Stracathro Hospital has been launched and NHS Tayside would like to hear your views.
The consultation will run from 3 July to 3 October 2017.
Further information about the consultation is available at www.transformingsurgery.scot.nhs.uk where you can find out about planned public engagement events and complete an online questionnaire to share your views.
