The new South Glasgow Hospital took another major step forward today after NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde appointed Currie and Brown as Technical Advisers for the new multi million pound development.
The new South Glasgow Hospital will deliver a new 1109-bedded adult hospital, a new 240-bedded children’s, hospital together with a new laboratory build by 2014. The new children’s hospital will be supported by a significantly upgraded maternity unit on which work has already begun as part of a separate project.
The appointment of Currie & Brown is another key milestone for this ambitious development. When the new Hospital is complete it will not only benefit the many thousands of patients we treat and our staff but will also deliver significant benefits and breathe new life into Govan and the wider area.
Alan Seabourne, Project Director, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said: “We are delighted to announce Currie and Brown as Technical Advisers for the new South Glasgow Hospital project.
“This is a huge development that will achieve the ‘gold-standard’ of triple co-location ensuring immediate access to specialist services of all kinds and therefore the highest quality and safety standards for adults, children and babies.
“Our proposals for the new campus represent the largest publicly funded investment in health services ever undertaken an Glasgow.”
James Hackett, Divisional Director, Currie & Brown UK Limited added: “We are delighted to have been appointed as Technical Advisor on such an important and prestigious project for Glasgow.
