Professor Jason Leitch and NHS Fife staff

Professor Leitch and Dr Wood began their visit by attending the early morning safety huddle, which brings staff representatives from all areas of the hospital together to ensure there are sufficient resources in place across the site to start the day.

The delegation later visited Fife’s National Treatment Centre for orthopaedics, which opened in March 2023 at a cost of £33m. The purpose-built facility provides orthopaedic care for patients across Fife and the Lothians.
