We can confirm a small chemical spillage occurred in a vehicle outside the New Victoria Hospital this morning.
Formalin was being transported in a sealed container. When the delivery van arrived at the site it was discovered that one container had accidentally opened in transit.
Our staff responded quickly and appropriately, linking in with the emergency services. A chemical team from Scottish Fire and Rescue promptly dealt with the spillage, while Police directed members of the public to other entrances while the situation was dealt with. Two staff members were also checked by medical colleagues as a precaution but are fine.
There was no impact on patients and the hospital has now returned to normal working.
