“The NHS in Scotland provides a fantastic service to thousands of patients who are seriously injured each year and the addition of these new trauma centres shows the commitment to enhancing and improving that service.

The dedicated Major Trauma Centres will build upon the existing trauma services across Scotland and these together with the Scottish Ambulance Service and surrounding units will help to deliver a world-class standard of care for people throughout the country.
