Within the community Yorkhill Division provides a wide range of services from four Child Development Centres at - Bridgeton Health Centre, Possilpark Health Centre, Drumchapel Health Centre and the new Southbank Centre in the Gorbals. These centres run various clinics dealing with speech, hearing, emotional or behavioural problems, as well as organising immunisation programmes in local schools. A wide range of staff provide these services, including consultant community Paediatricians, psychologists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists and school nurses amongst others.
In its role as a major academic institution, the Division is home to a number of University departments as well as internationally acclaimed research groups. The Division's significant commitment to the teaching and training of new doctors, nurses, midwives and other health professionals, ensures that highly trained NHS staff are ready to care for the mothers and children of tomorrow.
The Division is dedicated to providing all aspects of care at Yorkhill in a child focused and friendly environment. In order to achieve this, we are actively involving patients and their families through the Patient Focus Public Involvement (PFPI) initiative. This work is ongoing throughout and allows the patients and families actually using our services to tell us they feel and what could be improved at Yorkhill.
