NHS Grampian is committed to maintaining a high quality, safe, reliable and sustainable out of hours service.
Changes to GMED
Like all public sector organisations, NHS Grampian is facing significant financial challenges. In summer/autumn 2011, as part of the NHS Grampian wide process to address these challenges, the GMED General Manager met with clinical and non-clinical staff across Grampian to discuss how the service could be delivered more efficiently whilst still maintaining a safe and reliable service.
Information and Engagement
In response to local concerns about resulting changes in Inverurie and Aberdeenshire South, it was agreed that it was important to provide interested stakeholders with accurate and timely information about the changes.
