Stevenson Welcomes SNP Manifesto Confirmation of Aberdeen Role in Major Trauma Network

SNP Candidate for Banffshire and Buchan Coast Stewart Stevenson has welcomed SNP manifesto commitments to major investment in NHS services in the North-east with one of five new elective and diagnostic treatment centres based in Aberdeen and a key role for the city in the new major trauma network.

A re-elected SNP Scottish Government will invest £200 million in five new NHS treatment centres based on the successful Golden Jubilee Hospital approach. This will ensure that the NHS can cope with increased demand for routine procedures like cataract operations and hip and knee replacements.

An SNP Government will also create a major trauma network to reflect Scotland’s unique geography, including utilising sites in Aberdeen.

Stewart Stevenson commented:

"The SNP manifesto couldn't be clearer, we're going to deliver a major trauma network that reflects the unique geography of Scotland, and Aberdeen is going to play a vital part in that.

“Our major trauma network will build on the expertise in Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, and Edinburgh - building on, not removing anything from, these sites.

"We've tasked clinicians, including from ARI, to help shape the final model. A key part of the new trauma network will be how the emergency retrieval system for a major trauma network should operate to ensure people in the terrible circumstances that leads to major trauma, gets the best care as quickly as is possible."
