Western Infirmary Closure / West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital

Earlier this year, the majority of services, including all inpatient wards and the A&E department, closed at the Western Infirmary and transferred to the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Govan.

Now, all remaining services at the Western Infirmary have transfered to a new home across the road in the old Yorkhill Hospital.

The West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital at Yorkhill which opened on 7th December 2015 provides a range of local hospital services.  These include:

  • Minor Injuries Unit (opened at Yorkhill at 9am on Friday 4th December)
  • West Maternity Care Centre
  • Children's Diabetes Service (outpatients only)
  • Scottish Centre For Autism
  • Endocrinology
  • Dermatology outpatients and treatment
  • General outpatients
  • Cardiology outpatients
  • Orthopaedic outpatients
  • Physiotherapy and Therapy Centre
  • Respiratory testing
  • X-ray and Imaging

With the exception of the Minor Injuries Unit which can treat children aged 5 years and above for a range of minor injuries, the Scottish Centre for Autism and the Children's Diabetes Outpatient service, the West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital will only treat adults.

The Western Infirmary closed completely on 6th December 2015.  Visit our History page to download our booklet celebrating the history of the Western Infirmary.
