NHS Fife was delighted to welcome Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Nicola Steedman, and Interim Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Marion Bain, who visited a number of hospitals in the Kingdom on Friday 20 January 2023.
The event was one of a series of visits taking place with Boards across Scotland.
Dr Steedman and Professor Bain visited Randolph Wemyss Memorial Hospital in Buckhaven to learn about the work going on to support primary care services in the local area. The visit then moved to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, where Professor Bain and Dr Steedman met with staff in the Emergency Department, Admissions Units, Rapid Triage Unit and Ward 6.
The delegation later made the short journey to Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline, where they met with staff in theatres to learn about the new and innovative day-case procedures carried out there, as well as visiting Ward 5 to find out more about how clinical staff are working closely with the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership around the discharge process.
