In view of the ongoing adverse weather conditions, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has taken the decision to cancel all routine elective inpatient and daycase procedures tomorrow (Friday, March 2).
We have also taken the decision to cancel all morning outpatient appointments for tomorrow with the exception of urgent cancer patients, who will be contacted separately, and maternity clinics that will run as normal.
Afternoon outpatient appointments will go ahead as planned. Emergency and essential elective procedures will still go ahead.
We have also taken the decision to cancel any routine outpatient appointments planned for the weekend.
This decision does not relate to clinics within health centres and GP practices. Please contact your local health centre or GP surgery to find out whether the adverse weather has affected your appointment.
We apologise to the patients affected by these cancellations and will contact them to arrange alternative appointments as soon as possible.
NHSGGC is urging people to use the NHS wisely and make full use of NHS 24, pharmacies and its dedicated Minor Injury Units (MIUs) to ensure they are treated quickly.
