Hot on the heels of a £2.5 million investment for a new boiler at Inverclyde Royal Hospital, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has unveiled an additional £2.5 million investment package for the Greenock hospital.
The hospital, together with Glasgow Royal Infirmary, will benefit directly from £3.5 million of additional capital funding, with £2.5m of that going to upgrade the IRH Main Boiler House. This will bring additional resilience and reliability to the heating and power sources for the site.
As well as this, NHSGGC is investing more than £2.5 million in upgrading facilities at Inverclyde Royal Hospital.
The comprehensive programme of works, which will last six months, covers seven main areas:
David Loudon, NHSGGC’s Director of Property, Procurement and Facilities said: “This is obviously a very significant sum of money and it will be spent appropriately. We intend to keep investing in our hospitals and this money will be spent on improving the fabric and infrastructure of the building for the benefit of both staff and patients. We will do our very
best to keep disruption to a minimum for patients and staff while this investment work is carried out.”
