Shaping Surgical Services - A proposed transformation of surgical services in Tayside

Surgery 1
People across Angus, Dundee, and Perth & Kinross have shared valuable feedback during the three month consultation on proposals for surgical services in Tayside. Thank you to everyone who has participated in the public consultation, which concluded on Monday, 16 October.

All views gathered during the consultation will be included in a final report with recommendations for the new service model, which will be presented to the relevant Boards and Committees before the Tayside NHS Board makes a decision based on all the facts and opinions presented. Any decision on a new service model would then be presented to the Scottish Government for final approval.

NHS Tayside is proposing to make changes to where our surgeons, doctors and nurses deliver some general surgical procedures in Tayside.

The proposed changes are to ensure we can continue to provide sustainable, safe, high-quality surgical services into the future.

A public consultation on surgical services at Ninewells Hospital, Perth Royal Infirmary and Stracathro Hospital has been launched and we would like to hear your views.

The proposed changes would mean that unscheduled general surgical care would take place at Ninewells, allowing more planned procedures at Perth Royal Infirmary.
