The Organisation

Fife Acute Hospitals NHS Trust was created on 1 April 1999 following the re-organisation of NHS Trusts in Scotland. It was formed by the amalgamation of Kirkcaldy Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Queen Margaret Hospital NHS Trust.

The re-organisation of the Trusts in Scotland abolished the internal market replacing it with partnership and co-operation. Everything we do is about a patient-centered health service achieved through a close working relationship with our NHS partner organisations in Fife.

Fife Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has an income of approximately £100million and employs nearly 3,500 people. It is managed by a Trust Board which includes 5 Board Non-Executive Trustees, a Chairman, Chief Executive and 4 Executive Directors.
