THE new South Glasgow hospitals are set to be Scotland’s next TV star
The £842 million hospitals will be the focus of a new BBC Science documentary set to air later this year.
Shooting has commenced and already the documentary makers have joined a group of porters as they scaled the heights of the helipad to capture their reaction to working in such an intense atmosphere.
From the top of the helipad to the robots in the basement level, the film-makers will spend the next couple of months exploring every facet of how the empty building will be transformed into one of Europe’s largest hospitals.
Split over two one-hour episodes, viewers will be given an insight into the fitting out of the hospitals and see how staff prepare for the doors opening to the public for the first time. The BBC team will look at the logistics of moving all the necessary medical equipment into the hospital and the intricacies of making this all happen in the face of an impending deadline. Don’t be surprised if you walk round a corner in the hospital and see a film crew – you’re part of a huge story!
