Hospitals linked together

While each part of the new South Glasgow Hospitals Campus will have its own distinct identity and dedicated specialist staff each aspect is completely integrated with linkages for patient transfer, diagnostic services, emergency care and even a rapid access lift from the emergency helicopter pad on the roof of the hospital.

This means that the new children’s hospital will not only be linked to the adult hospital but also both the adult and children’s hospitals are linked to the redeveloped maternity hospital and to the Neurosciences Institute (INS).

The new campus also sees the construction of co-located adult and children’s A&E departments, with clear separate entrances but superb linkages through to the main hospital and wider support services.

A subterranean link will connect the new adult and children’s hospital to a brand new laboratory to ensure round the clock support.
