Working together for the future of Health and Social Care

Welcome to DG Change; a pioneering website that brings together four programmes of change in Dumfries and Galloway.

Here at DG Change, you will find everything you need to know about:

Health & Social Care

The integration programme that brings together Dumfries and Galloway Council and NHS Dumfries and Galloway, alongside Third and Independent sector and our local communities to improve the experience of people who use Adult health and social care services.

New Hospital

The £200 million new acute hospital for Dumfries and Galloway that will provide a brand new Emergency Care Department, a combined theatre complex for day surgery, endoscopy and surgical patients, and consolidated ambulatory care.

Change Programme

The Change Programme that will support us in preparing for our move to the new hospital and the introduction of new and enhanced ways of working between primary and secondary care.

Cresswell Project

Maternity Services will re-locate from Cresswell to the new hospital. Information about plans for the redevelopment of Cresswell will be made available in due course.

In Dumfries and Galloway, we have a strong history of good partnership working but we want to make this better. Please use this website as a one-stop shop for information and direction on all these joint programmes.

Exciting times are ahead of us, and together, we can radically reshape the way we deliver health and social care in the 21st Century.
