NHS Lothian provides services for the second largest residential population in Scotland - circa 800,000 people. It employs approximately 24,000 staff.
At NHS Lothian we believe that working together across all areas of the health service is the best way to provide care for patients. Through an innovative programme of modernisation, we are developing into a single integrated health system.
Patients and staff are benefiting from the creation of a more streamlined, patient-centred structure and from our more integrated approach to planning and delivering healthcare services.
