INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDY: A model for elective only hospitals

Visited by Simon Harris earlier this year, Golden Jubilee Hospital in Glasgow is Scotland’s national flagship hospital for reducing waiting times in key elective specialities. The Golden Jubilee is now undergoing expansion and is also part of a major programme of elective centres being built across Scotland. With plans to build elective only hospitals in Ireland, what can we learn from Scotland’s elective only hospital model?

We get the views of a range of stakeholders on developing models of hospital care fit for the future.
