Surgery & Medicine

As a region of incredible medical innovators…

Doctors in Tayside are working on ‘Realistic Medicine’ – a set of challenges set by the Chief Medical Officer for Scotland, Catherine Calderwood. These address the complex health and social care challenges faced by those in today’s society.

‘My Diabetes My Way’ has been developed in Dundee to provide a new support and learning platform for those living with diabetes in Scotland.

A £25m investment to grow the Tayside Biomedical Cluster will allow the region to become one of the most attractive biomedical locations in the UK as well as fostering innovation in the field.
