NHS Fife is to hold its Annual Review on Monday 13 November 2023 at the Rothes Halls in Glenrothes.

The Board’s Annual Review provides an opportunity to highlight the year's achievements and discuss relevant issues with members of the Scottish Government Health Department.

The agenda of each Annual Review is set by the Scottish Government based on national standards and agreed local performance targets. This years Review is the first to take place in-person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of the public are invited to attend the public session of the event from 1-2pm. Those wishing to attend in person are asked to book their place on the NHS Fife website at: www.nhsfife.org/ar.

The public are also invited to submit questions relating to healthcare in Fife in advance of the session. These too can be submitted on the NHS Fife website until Wednesday 08 November 2023, 

Those unable to book a place or submit a question online can obtain paper forms by calling: 01592 647971, or by emailing at: fife.annualreview@nhs.scot.

For the first time in Fife, the public session of the Review will be live-streamed, with those unable to attend in-person able to join the session remotely via the NHS Fife website.

Prior to the public session, NHS Fife will have a range of public information stands as part of a mini exhibition in the foyer of the Rothes Halls from 10am–12.30pm.

Alistair Morris, Acting Chair NHS Fife Board:

“I am delighted that this year NHS Fife has been able to reinstate our public annual review session with an in-person event.

“Our annual review is a key component in how NHS Boards are held to account for the significant public investment made in them.

“This year we will also be live streaming the session, to allow people from across Fife to view the proceedings.

“If you have a question you’d like to ask, please note that we can only answer questions that have been submitted in advance.

“Those attending in person can submit their question on the day and we will endeavour to address as many questions as we can during the public session if time allows.

“In the event that we run out of time and don’t get to your question, we will provide a response to emerging themes via the dedicated page on the NHS Fife website and to individuals within eight weeks. Please note that it will not be possible to answer questions about patient-specific issues.

“I hope that the public of Fife will support this event and take time to visit a range of public information stands as part of a mini exhibition in the foyer of the Rothes Halls from 10am – 12.30pm”.
