Change of venue
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s next meeting of the Board will be held in the William Quarrier Conference Centre, 20 St Kenneth Drive, Glasgow, G51 4QD on Tuesday, December 20th. The Board meeting will begin at 10.00 am.
We’ve changed the venue from our normal Board headquarters on the Gartnavel Hospitals campus so that we can accommodate more public seating as we expect more than we could accommodate in our own boardroom.
There is a perception that some commentators and interested parties think that this Board meeting will be “D-Day” for several of the services currently being considered for change.
I wanted to outline what will be considered for decision, what will be considered for next steps…and what won’t be considered or decided upon to ensure there is no confusion.
NB: RAH ward 15: Our proposal to move inpatient paediatric services from a ward within the Royal Alexandra Hospital to the specialist Royal Hospital for Children a few miles away on the grounds of best clinical practice and patient benefit is still undergoing a period of public/patient engagement that will result in the Board considering next steps at its February 2017 Board meeting.
