As part of its wider Transforming Tayside plans, NHS Tayside is proposing to make changes to where surgeons, doctors and nurses deliver orthopaedic surgery in the region, including planned operations and unplanned trauma operations.

- Thursday, 24 October from 10am until 4pm in the Overgate Shopping Centre, Dundee
- Friday, 25 October from 10am until 4pm in Asda Superstore, 85 Dunkeld Road, Perth
- Wednesday, 30 October from 10am until 4pm in Morrisons, Hume Street, Arbroath
Professor Peter Stonebridge, Acting Medical Director, said, “Hundreds of people have already taken part in our Shaping Orthopaedic Services consultation and given us vital feedback. I would encourage people to come along to these pop up events and let us know their thoughts about our plans.
“Feedback on the proposals so far has been mainly positive but it is important that we hear the views of as many of our patients, staff and service users as possible to help us build services that are fit for the future.”
People can also share their views by taking part in a short survey by following the link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SOSgeneral.
Feedback received on the plans so far is now being shared on NHS Tayside’s social media sites and on the dedicated Shaping Orthopaedic Services webpage at www.transformingtayside.scot.nhs.uk. People can also call 0800 7836110 or email email@example.com for further information.
