Establishment of a Hospital Retraction Group to oversee Decommissioning.

Resettling of residents from Wards 2/3.


May: Establishment of A Hospital Retraction Group to oversee the process of decommissioning. The core group membership covered clinical, support services, projects, trade union and estates. There was no representation from records/information management on the core group and while there was documented input from NHS Tayside’s health records and information manager after the presence of patient identifiable information was reported by a member of the public, the extent to which records/information management had input or influence into the site clearance process was unclear. The health records manager was not routinely included in the circulation of Hospital Retraction Group minutes and there is no evidence that the Manual on the Management of Health Records was in use.
