Clinicians from across healthcare gathered last week to further develop a blueprint for the future delivery of services in Fife.  

NHS Fife is in the process of developing a new Clinical Strategy to ensure that it is well-placed to respond to the changing healthcare needs of the population over the next five years and beyond.

The NHS Fife Clinical Strategy Development Event, which was hosted at Lynebank Hospital, Dunfermline, was attended by around 150 delegates from across NHS Fife, the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership and their partner organisations.

The event saw representatives of each of the working groups involved in the development of the Strategy provide an update on their initial discussions and outline a direction of travel for where services could be redesigned and enhanced so that the ongoing healthcare needs of patients in Fife can be met in a more effective way.

Speaking after the event, Director of Planning and Strategic Partnerships, Jann Gardner said:

“The development event today was incredibly valuable, both in terms of assessing the progress made thus far and in making sure that our strategy will provide a cohesive blueprint for the provision of high quality care, person-centred care across the range of services we provide in Fife. 

“The views of patients, families, public and staff have been crucial in informing the development of the strategy thus far and will continue to be so over the coming weeks. We want to know what is important to the population we serve and what we can do to improve their experience when they require our care.”

There is still opportunity to contribute to the development of the Clinical Strategy and there is a range of means by which to do so:
