NHS Scotland

NHS Borders

We think the Scottish Borders is first in Scotland as the best place to live and pursue a professional career in the Health Service.  With a revenue budget of over £190m, NHS Borders is responsible for the health of a population of over 114,000 people across Scottish Borders area.   NHS Borders has an entirely integrated structure for the delivery of local health services, including acute hospital (Borders General Hospital), primary and community, mental health services and learning disability services.  We work closely in strategic health planning with neighbouring NHS Boards in the South East Scotland.  In addition there is close joint working across Scottish Borders Council and the Voluntary Sector to manage, in partnership, the local healthcare and social care agenda

Decision-making is firmly embedded with an integrated Clinical Executive, responsible for ensuring the overall management of services, operational service planning and service redesign. The Clinical Executive has the authority to manage resources across the area and designs care from a "whole system" perspective.

Clinical Governance is well established, forming part of the Risk Management of the whole organisation.  Clinical Governance is seen as a positive support to all clinicians with active participation by all health professions.  There is a wide range of opportunities for newly appointed doctors to be involved.
