Public Consultation Meetings – Surgical Services in Scotland Review

March 4, 2016

UPDATE – 08/09/2016

CLAPA has released a final statement following a debate in Scottish Parliament.

Read the Statement


After a review of Cleft Surgical Services in Scotland, a proposal has been made to change the way these are delivered.

There is currently a single surgical service operating from two sites: Edinburgh and Glasgow. The proposed changes would see a single service operating from a single site: Glasgow.

Only the delivery of surgical services would be affected – all other cleft services in Scotland would stay the same.

As part of a public consultation which is open until May 1st, three meetings will be held. You are invited to attend and give your opinion on the proposed changes to the service.
