Accident and Emergency Tel: 0141 3146195

This is an Emergency Department. We prioritise people who have a serious injury or accident or who have a sudden serious illness or medical condition. It may be more appropriate and you may be seen more quickly by your GP or another health care professional rather than waiting for treatment here.

If you think that a life is at risk you should call 999 right away.

A&E and Minor Injuries Services are available in a number of locations. Use our postcode finder to see which is the right one for you.

You can attend your local Minor Injury Unit (MIU) to get urgent care for a minor injury including sprains, burns and simple fractures. MIUs are run by highly experienced Emergency Nurse Practitioners who will assess and either treat a minor injury or, if they find a more serious problem, arrange for you to be transferred elsewhere.

Children with serious illnesses and injuries who are less than one year of age should be taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow. Children from one year on should either go to your local A&E department or to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

You can find out more about which conditions may be seen and treated more quickly elsewhere from our Know who to turn to pages.

Dental Centre Tel: 0141 314 9500
The dental centre provides a comprehensive range of oral health services under one roof.

These include access to dentists for people unable to attend a general dental practitioner, such as infirm older people, patients with long-term illnesses or special needs. The centre also accommodates specialist NHS dental services which means that 3000 patients no longer have to travel to Glasgow Dental Hospital for treatment.

All surgeries in the dental centre are designed and equipped to deliver all forms of dental treatment, from Oral Surgery to Orthodontics. 2 surgeries have been designed for special care patients that have additional requirements: surgery 11 for younger patients, and surgery 16 for sedation/adult special care. Both surgeries have the necessary equipment to allow patients to be treated under conscious sedation, if necessary.

Having all dental disciplines within one centre benefits patients and staff, as dentists can consult with each other easily, in person, ensuring that patients receive the best care available without having to be referred elsewhere.

Dental student outreach training, under the supervision of qualified dentists, takes place at the centre for students from the University of Glasgow Dental Hospital & School. The Centre holds eight student training chairs. All treatment at the clinic is carried out by Final Year Dental Students from the University of Glasgow Dental Hospital and School and is carefully supervised by a fully qualified dentist who has overall responsibility for dental care.

Spiritual Care Tel: 0141 314 9561 or 0141 314 7365

The Healthcare Chaplains for The Royal Alexandra Hospital can be contacted on 0141 314 9561 or 0141 314 7365

 

The Hospital Chapel is located off the long glass corridor and is open day and night for patients, relatives and staff as a place of peace, quiet and prayer. There is a book provided for written prayers and reflections and a range of religious resources available including prayer mats. There is also a quiet room adjacent to the chapel.

 

The Chaplains’ offices are opposite the chapel.

 

The Chaplaincy Service delivers spiritual and religious care to all people.  Spiritual care addresses the fundamental human need to have a sense of peace, security and hope particularly in the context of injury, illness or loss.  Healthcare Chaplains do this by being attentive to the patient’s story, looking for sources of strength and resilience, valuing the person and what is most important to them. Religious care can be a crucial aspect of this.  Healthcare Chaplains work with other NHS staff to ensure that these needs are met and, where appropriate, in partnership with local faith and belief groups.


We regard Spiritual Care as an intrinsic part of the holistic care provided to patients, and to those who care for them. To this end our Chaplaincy Service provides or facilitates spiritual and religious care for patients, clients, carers and staff.  

What do chaplains do? 

  • Chaplains take time to listen, non-judgementally and with compassion
  • respect and support everyone’s faith or doubts, beliefs or non-belief
  • are interested in each person’s story
  • provide rituals or ceremonies at significant times which help people to deal with change and loss
  • support and train NHS staff and others in understanding spiritual care and related matters

Local faith community leaders have an important role to play in ensuring that patients who belong to their community have their particular religious needs met.  A leaflet giving information and guidance for faith and belief community leaders on visiting hospitals is available here.

For general enquiries about Healthcare Chaplaincy in NHSGGC you may contact the Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care tel: 0141 452 3220 or email us at [email protected]   

If you are contacting the Chaplaincy Service about a patient in one of our hospitals, please ensure, if possible, that the patient is aware of this and has agreed to it. 

An NHS Healthcare Chaplain is always on-call and ward staff can arrange for them to be paged.  A Roman Catholic Priest is also available at all times.
