Elective Care Centre


NHS Tayside





Working with NHS Tayside in reviewing elective care requirements for 11 specialties as part of a National Treatment Centre specifically established to provide additional capacity for a growing population up to 2035 and infrastructure to meet the needs of an elderly population that will be 25-30% higher than at present.

Key outputs of the work

The output of the initial phase of work was a clearly defined clinical model endorsed by the clinical community across the specialties within scope; a robust set of Clinical Output Specifications and Schedule of Accommodation.

Subsequent to this we supported the Board in developing key aspects of the Outline Business Case (OBC) through the facilitation of a full non-financial benefits assessment involving a wide range of stakeholders including staff, members of the public and a range of delivery partners.  

Designing and Describing the Clinical model

A clearly defined clinical model was agreed by clinical and executive leads covering a variety of surgical specialties

Opportunities to support Digital Health

Key supporting technologies and opportunities were identified and integrated into planning assumptions

Non-financial benefits assessment

Involving a wide range of stakeholders including staff, members of the public and a range of delivery partners

What key stakeholders have to say...

“B+A led and delivered a very demanding schedule of over fifty workshops, to inform our Clinical Brief in building an elective care centre. They achieved this in the midst of COVID, using Microsoft TEAMS. The "virtual" approach worked incredibly well, and the way in which the sessions were facilitated using this platform enabled replication of many of the experiences of a traditional face to face approach and even some advantages. Throughout, the Buchan's team were utterly dependable, highly informed and hugely professional. Their input to our process has been invaluable.”

Dr Michael Forster, Clinical Lead, Tayside Elective Care Centre​
