Last year, over 62,500 patients across Scotland benefitted from procedures carried out by the Golden Jubilee National Hospital.
Since 2002, the Golden Jubilee has collaborated with NHS Boards across Scotland, helping patients from Stranraer to Stornoway to be treated or diagnosed faster than ever before.
The independent national NHS Board provides vital regional and national heart and lung services as well as being one of Europe’s largest and best known planned care hospitals, specialising in key demand procedures such as hip and knee replacements, cataracts, general surgery, endoscopy and diagnostic imaging.
Jann Gardner, Chief Executive of NHS Golden Jubilee, commented: “Through our elective care procedures and specialist heart and lung services, our primary focus is to deliver the best quality healthcare to the people of Scotland – care that is person centred, safe and effective.
“We will continue to treat more patients year on year as we work on expanding the Golden Jubilee National Hospital. We will also work with colleagues across NHS Boards to deliver equity of treatment and access for as many patients as possible as part of the National Elective Centres Programme.
“We would not be able to carry out the much needed surgeries and procedures that Scottish patients need without our dedicated and caring staff. The Golden Jubilee team has introduced new innovative models of care and always try and go the extra mile for our patients.
“We now look forward to ensuring that we continue to provide the high quality health service that patients expect and deserve.”
