In 2009 we opened two state of the art Ambulatory Care centres at Stobhill and the Victoria Hospitals, purpose-designed to deliver outpatient, day case, day surgical and minor injuries care.
Further resources are also being concentrated on three other sites (at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Gartnavel and Southern General Campuses) to create centres of excellence for surgical, medical and emergency care. One location in particular - the planned new South Glasgow Acute Hospital at the Southern General Campus- will be among the largest in the UK. A new specialist children’s hospital will also be located on the Southern site. The adult and children's hospital will be integrated within a single building, albeit with separate entrances and building identities.
Mental Health Services are also undergoing major transformation, creating new purpose-built facilities at three locations: Gartnavel Campus, Stobhill Campus and Southern General Campus. These offer second-to-none inpatient and day services, delivering the best possible care.
A new Laboratory Facility providing Biochemistry, Haematology, Pathology, Genetics and city wide mortuary services bases at the Southern General Campus opened in 2012.
