Delivering care through collaboration

Phase 2: Surgical Centre

One of our key objectives on behalf of NHSScotland is the reduction of waiting times in key elective specialities. As such, we are the largest orthopaedic centre in Europe, carrying out 25% of all hip and knee replacements and revisions in Scotland.

Our pioneering Orthopaedic team developed the Caledonian Enhanced Recovery Programme, allowing patients to be mobilised on the day of surgery, leading to improved outcomes and faster recovery times.

The team led on this programme’s rollout on a “Once for Scotland” basis, improving the standard of care for patients all across the country.

Work continues on Phase 2 of our expansion with the new Surgical Centre, which is scheduled to be completed in Winter 2023/24.

The Centre will include:

  • Additional general surgery, orthopaedic and endoscopy facilities
  • New surgical admissions and recovery unit
  • New Central Sterile Processing Department
  • New Day Case / Day Surgery admission unit
  • Additional Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) spaces
  • Extra outpatient and pre-operative assessment area and diagnostic space
  • A large theatre recovery facility for our patients
