About the Campus

Planning

The entire campus will have excellent transport links together with three brand new multi storey car parks.

Brookfield Multiplex’s design also sees the construction of a marvellous new campus boulevard which creates the feeling of grandeur and space.

Some of the existing buildings will remain such as the neurosciences unit and maternity building, as previously mentioned, and the modern Langlands Building providing care for older people.  Also staying, as a marker to the site’s rich past in the provision of healthcare, will be the famous Clock Tower and two other listed building on the site.

There will be around 2000 beds on the site including new adults and children’s hospital together with maternity beds, Neurosciences Unit beds and Langlands building.

Brookfield Multiplex also targetted locally trained apprentices and new starts plus people who are currently unemployed from the local area which continues to be of huge economic benefit.

Hospitals All Linked Together

While each part of the South Glasgow Hospitals Campus has 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 is not only 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 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 connects the new adult and children’s hospital to a brand new laboratory to ensure round the clock support.
