The second in a series of Transforming Tayside public engagement events was held at Harris Academy in Dundee on Saturday.

The public events aim to enable as many members of the public to give their views about the direction of travel proposed in the ambitious Transforming Tayside 2019-2022 programme.

Consultant surgeon and clinical lead for orthopaedics Mr Sankar Sripada and joint clinical lead for the Tayside Stroke Managed Clinical Network Gillian Crighton hosted sessions on the Shaping Orthopaedic Services and Shaping Hyper Acute Care projects.

Attendees also gave their feedback on transport and access, and urgent and emergency care, with a focus on experiences of using services such as NHS24 and the Emergency Department as well as the challenges of using public transport for attending hospital appointments.

The final event in this series will take place on Saturday, 28 September at Forfar Community Campus. There are also several Transforming Tayside pop-up events which are currently taking place at community hospitals across Tayside, with the next event taking place at Blairgowrie Community Hospital on Monday from 2-4.30pm.
