Glasgow Royal ward gets £1.8m upgrade

Thursday, February 27, 2020

A female orthopaedic ward at Glasgow Royal Infirmary has been given a new lease of life thanks to a £1.8m investment.

Ward 27, which accommodates female patients recovering from injury and trauma, was completely remodelled over a nine month period. A new four-bedded side room was created and the space between patients’ beds was increased with infection control prevention in mind.

A new physiotherapy gym was created from office space and two additional side rooms with en-suite and tracking facilities were added.

Senior charge nurse Katie Higson oversaw the transformation. She said: “The space we now have to rehabilitate our patients following orthopaedic surgery is amazing. 

“We are no longer restricted with equipment and have a light and airy ward with great visibility of all.  Being in hospital can be a difficult time for people especially after an injury but having a nice environment can be the little thing that makes the difference.”

NHSGGC’s North Director Isobel Neil added:We are delighted with the remodelling of the ward and I am particularly pleased about the enhancements for our clinical teams and the patients they care for in the ward.”
