27 MAR The Nursing Times OnlineCritical Care Outreach nurse specialists have gained headlines once again, this time in Nursing Times Online. The group of kind-hearted nurses are being hailed for their improvements to patient care at Borders General Hospital.

Since beginning the Critical Care Outreach programme, Borders General Hospital has achieved one of the lowest mortality rates in patient care. This impressive title endorses the work of the Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP), a ground-breaking initiative lead by Healthcare Improvement Scotland, which ensures that every patient in NHS Scotland receives the best possible patient care. 

The Nursing Times Online swooped up the story, featuring it on their website. Nursing Times reports news on a wide range of heath related topics of relevance to nurses, midwives and health visitors.


The coverage helped showcase the hard work of the Critical Care Outreach team and generated very positive coverage for Borders General Hospital as a whole. The full article can be read at Nursing Times Online.

The coverage was achieved as part of an ongoing PR campaign by Holyrood PR – the full story is in the original press release.
