NHS Dumfries & Galloway became operational on 1st April 2003 when the two Trusts (Acute & Maternity and Primary Care) were dissolved and one NHS organisation was created, incorporating all NHS services along with the Health Board. NHS Dumfries & Galloway has led the process of Trust integration and is seen as the model for the rest of Scotland to follow. Continuing new investment has resulted from the system always having met all financial and waiting times targets. Services are provided via one of seven General Management Directorates - Operations, Acute, Diagnostics, Primary Care & Community Care - East, Primary Care and Community Care - West, Women's & Children's Services, and Mental Health.
