 The Scottish Trauma Network will consist of four centres across Scotland. The centres at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee (East), Edinburgh Royal (South East), Aberdeen Royal (North) and Queen Elizabeth in Glasgow (West) will create a trauma network where the most seriously injured patients will receive the best specialist treatment and rehabilitation.

The development of the Easter Region’s Major Trauma Centre at Ninewells is being led by Emergency Department consultant Dr Mike Johnston.
