This month marks the 65th anniversary of the NHS in Scotland. But for the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, it is also a time for us to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our orthopaedic service and the fifth anniversary of our heart and lung service.
Earlier this month we held our first ever Patient Safety Day.
This week we announced that we are expanding our specialist orthopaedic and ophthalmology services to treat more Scottish patients than ever before.
This month we were lucky enough to unveil six unique pieces of art to commemorate 10 years of the Golden Jubilee National Hospital.
As a national resource for the NHS in Scotland, here at the Golden Jubilee we pride ourselves on providing a quality service for all our patients.
Earlier this month, Robert Francis QC published his report following the public inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust – the follow up to the original inquiry.
January saw us hold two very special Ministerial events to help draw our 10th anniversary celebrations to a close.
As we come to the end of another year, it is only natural that we think back to the year that has almost gone. For us here at the Golden Jubilee, 2012 has been an exciting year as we marked our 10th year as part of the NHS in Scotland.
It was a real privilege this month to welcome Professor Lord Robert Winston who visited us to deliver our inaugural Beardmore Lecture.
Last Wednesday (24 October) we had our Annual Review. The Annual Review isn’t just another meeting – it’s a particularly important and special one.
