Dr Stewart Lambie

I have been a consultant in renal and general medicine in Inverness from 2005 onwards and am now the Clinical Director for the Medical and Diagnostics Division of Raigmore Hospital. I have been involved in the Scottish Patient Safety Programme in Highland 2008, initially in the Medicines Reconsiliation workstream alone and subsequently as the clinical lead for SPSP in Raigmore. I have an interest in improvement methodology and am keen to promote the safety and quality agenda thropughout the hospital and also within renal medicine both in Inverness and in Scotland.
