NHS services for the half-million people who live in Grampian are provided by NHS Grampian, and are overseen by one single NHS Board.
The Board is supported from headquarters at Summerfield House in Aberdeen. Senior managers for the functions which cover the whole of Grampian are based here, including financial overview, corporate planning and central responsibility for protection and promotion of public health. NHS Grampian consists of acute services, corporate services and mental health services.
This territorial board also provides some acute care for NHS Orkney and NHS Shetland.
NHS Grampian works closely with the three Health and Social Care Partnerships and the three local authorities. NHS Grampian is also very closely linked with both the University of Aberdeen and The Robert Gordon University, especially in the fields of research, workforce planning and training.
