PUBLIC INVITED TO FIND OUT ABOUT KEY CHANGES ACROSS THE STOBHILL SITE

March 10, 2006 4:51 PM

A series of events have been organised to give local residents and community representatives an opportunity to find out more about the development of services across the Stobhill site.

The events, which have been organised by NHS Greater Glasgow as part of its ongoing commitment to update the public on the development of health services across the city, will take place on Tuesday 28th March at Bishopbriggs High School and Thursday 30th March at Springburn Academy.  Members of the public can drop in anytime between 6 p.m. and 8.30 p.m.

Robert Calderwood, Acute Division Chief Operating Officer, said: "We are investing more than £135 million to transform the Stobhill site and ensure it remains one of the city's key health locations for decades to come.

"Changes are already happening across the site as building work gets underway and we want to give local residents and community groups the opportunity to find out more about these initial changes as well as our longer term plans.

"I would therefore encourage local people to come along to find out more and meet some of the key staff involved in developing these important new healthcare facilities."

Plans and visuals of the following key developments will be available at the events:

  • New Stobhill Hospital
  • Rowanbank Clinic (Local Forensic Psychiatric Unit)
  • West of Scotland Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient Service
  • Car parking improvements

Staff will also be on hand to discuss these plans in more detail and answer any questions.

These will include:

  • New footpaths, more street lighting and better road crossings throughout the site
  • Improvements to existing car parks, including more disabled spaces as close to the main entrance as possible
  • Additional temporary car parks replace parking spaces that will be lost during the building of New Stobhill Hospital
  • Demolition of Wards 2,3 & 4 to clear the site for the new Stobhill Hospital
  • The start of building work for the new 24-bed West of Scotland Adolescent Inpatient Service

Construction of the new Local Forensic Psychiatric Unit, which will be known as Rowanbank Clinic, is also now underway and will continue throughout 2006.
