Changes to Rehabilitation Services in North East Glasgow: Lightburn Hospital

We are proposing to reshape the delivery of rehabilitation services in north east Glasgow which will result in the transfer of services from Lightburn Hospital to our acute sites at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Stobhill and to local care homes and community facilities in the east end of Glasgow.

To shape our proposals and hear what patients and the public think we will deliver a substantial engagement programme with people across the area which will run from the beginning of September until the beginning of December. This programme will be shaped by a stakeholder reference group to include representatives from north and east Glasgow older peoples’ groups, carers’ associations and patient groups.

The stakeholder reference group will oversee the development of a range of communications resources and will help advise on the best means of engaging with those affected and local communities.

Public engagement will be delivered with the Health and Social Care Partnership and shaped following discussions with the stakeholder reference group and will include things like:

  • Engagement with local stakeholders
  • Workshops
  • Drop in sessions
  • Visibility of the proposals at key public locations in the East End.

At the end of this period of engagement the Board will make a decision on whether to move to a period of full public consultation.

A dedicated Patient Experience and Public Involvement Manager, John Barber, will facilitate the engagement process. If you or anyone you know would like to ask questions or talk through the proposal. Please contact John on 0141 201 0384 or email him on [email protected]

Further information will be available on this site as the engagement programme develops, meantime you can let us have your views by emailing us at [email protected]

In the meantime, the background to the proposal is available in Board Paper 16/45 (overview and appendix).
