NHS Tayside

NHS Tayside is responsible for delivering healthcare to around more than 400,000 people living in Tayside. We employ around 14,000 staff and provide a comprehensive range of primary, community-based and acute hospital services for the populations of Dundee City, Angus and Perth & Kinross.

The Urology Department for outpatients in the Tayside region was centralised to Perth Royal Infirmary (PRI) in May 2019. With longer journeys comes the increased risk of not attending (DNA) as well as an increase in car-based travel. New patients are more likely to DNA due to anxiety. With increased trip lengths travel becomes an additional barrier.

Tactran Enable will bring together real time journey planning data, booking/ticketing and the payment systems of public, active and shared mode transport operators. This will allow patients to make better informed choices on how they travel to PRI.
