Introduction

This website contains patient pathways which were originally developed by the Centre for Change and Innovation (CCI) for NHSScotland.  As the CCI no longer exists, the process through which these pathways are managed and updated is being revised. Details will be available here once that process has been finalised.

The dates that particular pathways were updated can be found on the specific pathway pages.  Some of the pathways have been updated as part of the 18 Weeks Referral to Treatment Time Programme. The links to these are available on the specific pathways page as well as through the 18 Weeks website.

Please Note

  • Please be aware that clinical practice may have changed since these pathways were last updated.
  • Where drugs are mentioned, clinicians should refer to SMC recommendations and their local formularies in order to produce a workable local version of the relevant pathways.
  • Photographs have been kindly provided by clinicians on the groups.
