This summer will see thousands of patients and staff take part in the largest ever migration to a new hospital in Glasgow’s history.
With the first patients due to be admitted to the new South Glasgow University Hospitals (SGUH) at the end of April a number of transport options are available for patients, visitors and staff to travel to the SGUH. These include:
To help plan the most direct journeys to the SGUH, the Traveline Scotland website www.travelinescotland.com now has a section dedicated to the new hospitals on its homepage.
A partnership between transport operators and local authorities, Traveline Scotland provides impartial information on reaching destinations using public transport.
The most direct door-to-door public transport options to the new hospitals are just a touch of a button away using the journey planner. New public transport services to the hospitals are also being updated as services increase.
Passengers will be able to plan their journeys using the website, the app, or the 24/7 call centre.
The call centre is open around the clock every day of the year. Tailored journey information is available by calling 0871 200 22 33 at any time.
A dedicated free Traveline Scotland app is available for smart phones from the Apple, Blackberry, Microsoft Windows and Android app stores.
An NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde spokesman said: “The move to the new hospitals is the biggest ever migration of services in the history of Glasgow health care.
“We want to ensure patients, visitors and staff are fully prepared for the move and have a travel plan in place.
“By using the Traveline Scotland service, people will have a number of ways to find a wide variety of travel options for travelling to and from the hospitals.”
