Tom Divers, Chief Executive of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “The City Council’s conditional approval of our outline planning application for the new Southern Campus is very good news for Glasgow.
“This marks the beginning of the next phase of our ambitious hospital construction and service re-design programme to deliver the most modern acute healthcare services in the UK.
“Our plans to significantly develop the existing Southern General site will see a brand new adult hospital, children’s hospital and a significantly upgraded maternity facility on the Southern site. The overall development will see Glasgow become home to the biggest and most modern healthcare campus in the UK.
“The process has benefitted from sound collaborative working between ourselves, city planners and the other agencies involved. We now look forward to submitting the Outline Business Case to the Scottish Government’s Capital Investment Group before the end of February, with the confidence that our outline planning application has now been approved.”
