Successful Transfer of Western A&E to the New South Glasgow University Hospital

Monday, June 1, 2015

The Western Infirmary’s Emergency Department (ED) closed on Saturday at 8am. 

Jonathan Best, the service director who led  the Western Infirmary move, said: “We’re very pleased with the seamless transition of patients, staff and services to the South Glasgow University Hospital. 

“After detailed planning and partnership working with staff and the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) 121 patients have been moved over the weekend. This brings the total number of patients moved to almost 600. 

“Our staff and SAS deserve high praise for ensuring a smooth transition while ensuring services were still being delivered throughout.   

“All three adult emergency departments have now moved together to the South Glasgow University Hospital, the final wards will move from Gartnavel General Hospital on 6th June

Patients with serious injuries and major emergencies should now attend the Emergency Department in the new world-class South Glasgow University Hospital (SGUH). 

People living in the Summerston or Maryhill areas should attend ED at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. 

Patients with minor injuries such as cuts, broken bones, sprains and minor burns can still be treated at the Western Infirmary at a newly established West Glasgow Minor Injuries Unit. 

Or if patients live in the Summerston or Maryhill areas they can attend the Minor Injuries Unit in Glasgow Royal Infirmary’s A&E or Stobhill’s Minor Injuries Unit.
