We are now consulting on our proposal to move Ward 15 to the Royal Hospital for Children. This move would mean that we would treat children requiring inpatient care, day surgery, and short stay medical assessment in the new Royal Hospital for Children instead of the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.
The engagement has built on earlier extensive engagement about the future of these services, including an option appraisal, which concluded that the preferred option was to transfer Ward 15 when the new Royal Hospital for Children opened on the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospitals Campus.
The Board considered the outcome of the pre consultation, and decided in October 2016 that we should proceed to formal public consultation on the proposed move of these services from Ward 15 in the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, to the new Royal Hospital for Children in Govan. Outpatient services, the specialist Community Paediatric service (PANDA), and emergency care for those who self-refer at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, would not change.
Please see here for a copy of the Board paper.
The consultation has now started, and will run to Monday 6 February 2017.
