Move of Adult Mental Health Wards Parkhead Hospital.doc
There are currently two Adult inpatient wards at Parkhead Hospital. These wards will be relocated to Stobhill Hospital and be provided by two 20 bedded wards. Capital funding to achieve this has been identified through NHSGGC Capital Planning Group and this scheme will be completed in 2016. There will be a minimum reduction in the services being delivered to this patient group by a reduction of beds from 48 to 40 in line with the NHS GGC’s Mental Health Strategy. There will be significant improvements in the quality of accommodation available. With this in mind, the Equality Impact Assessment has focused on the possible barriers incurred in the physical move rather than the actual service being delivered.
