MSPs Back Opening of £1.1 million NHS Base in North-East

North-East MSPs have welcomed the opening of a new £1.1 million base for Scotland’s emergency adult retrieval service in Aberdeen.

The ScotsTAR North base will provide potentially life-saving pre-hospital care for trauma patients and for other critically ill patients.
The opening has been backed by Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin and Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson.

With the opening of the ScotSTAR North base, the pre-hospital critical care teams join the teams at the base in Glasgow to provide services that now cover the whole of Scotland.

The consultant-led teams at the £1.1 million base are on hand to provide major incident pre-hospital medical response, retrievals of patients with major trauma, critically ill and critically injured patients and telephone advice to remote and rural hospital staff with regard to resuscitation and safe transfer of patients with critical illness.

Commenting, Gillian Martin MSP and Stewart Stevenson MSP, said:

“The opening of this new base builds upon previous investment in the North-East including the Major Trauma Centre in Aberdeen.

“The addition of this base will help to ensure care across the region is of the highest standard.

“Once again, it shows the commitment of the SNP Scottish Government to enhancing and continuing to improve patient care and and investing in vital public services.”
