NHS Tayside halted changes to its reconfiguration programme in line with the inquiry’s interim report recommendations, in May 2018.

The cabinet secretary and I made it clear that we would not support NHS Tayside’s proposals for changing in-patient services until we were satisfied that they were framed by consideration of the whole system, including local community services. As I described in my statement, I expect NHS Tayside’s strategy for transforming and improving mental health and wellbeing to give careful consideration to all available resources at its disposal to ensure the best outcome for staff, and for patients and their families.
