NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is ready for the XX Commonwealth Games, Glasgow 2014 and it will be business as usual for the UK’s largest health authority.
As part of the planning for the international event, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has dedicated a section of its website for the Games. It has a host of information for members of staff and the public and the million extra visitors which are expected to visit Glasgow during Games’ time.
The XX Commonwealth Games takes place in Glasgow from Wednesday 23 July until Sunday 3 August 2014. It will be the largest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland and the competition will play out over 11 days in venues throughout the city.
NHSGGC’s ‘Get set for Glasgow 2014’ web portal provides advice for staff to ensure that patient care is not disrupted. This includes detailed information on road closures and procedures for staff who are providing services in local communities.
Patients and visitors can also find information on the most appropriate contact for a healthcare issue along with information on transport providers.
Anne Harkness, Director for Emergency Care and Medical Services, said: “We know that Glasgow is going to be busier during these two weeks and we have been preparing for it. We are committed to ensuring that it will be business as usual for the thousands of patients that we see on a daily basis.
“This portal is a great way for our staff to find out information on road closures, parking restrictions and other factors which may have an impact on how they would normally deliver their services.”
