    Proposed Transfer of Paediatric Inaptient and Day Case Services from Ward 15 RAH
    The Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley has a children’s ward (Ward 15) which currently treats children up to the age of 16 with a new diagnosis, and some children older than 16 who have already been in their care, requiring hospital care in the Clyde area for a range of conditions. The children’s ward includes: • overnight beds • a day case area for planned surgery and investigations • a 24-hour short stay medical assessment area for assessing and treating emergency cases. Emergency cases are either referred to the ward via the Emergency Department, having been brought there by ambulance or by their parents (known as self-referral) or sent directly by their GP. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde proposes to transfer children’s emergency assessment and treatment, and all planned inpatient and day case care from Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley to the Royal Hospital for Children in Govan, seven miles away. Under the proposal, children who would have attended the Royal Alexandra Hospital Emergency Department by ambulance will be taken directly to the Royal Hospital for Children, or if they were sent by directly by their GP, they will be asked to go to the Royal Hospital for Children. Parents can still bring children to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Emergency Department and they will be seen, treated at the Royal Alexandra Hospital if appropriate, or transferred to the Royal Hospital for Children.
