A major trauma centre will open in Dundee next month.
The centre – which is the second to be completed in Scotland – will open on Monday November 19 and will join Scotland’s Trauma Network.
The Aberdeen centre was officially opened on Monday by Health Secretary Jeane Freeman who said: “This marks an important day in changing trauma care in Scotland for the better.
“The new centre will help our most severely injured patients and ensure patients have the best chance of a speedy recovery from their injuries.”
The network will also include the Scottish Ambulance Service and existing trauma services.
So far, £15.2 million has been invested to make the network a reality with funding expected to increase gradually over five years.
The Edinburgh and Glasgow Centres are expected to be complete by 2020-21.
