Ward at The Brownlee Centre
Opened in February 2008 the Beatson provides all the radiotherapy, and much of the chemotherapy, for patients with cancer in the west of Scotland. We offer our service and care to 60% of Scotland’s population – 2.8 million people.
Situated in the west of the city, a broad range of medical and surgical sub-specialties are provided, supported by an inpatient operating department.
The breadth and complexity of services at Gartnavel has expanded considerably over the years, with the development of the Brownlee Centre for communicable diseases, the NHS Centre for Integrative Care, the Ophthalmology department, West of Scotland Cancer Centre (the Tom Wheldon Building) and of course the Beatson.

The Healthcare Chaplain for Gartnavel General can be contacted on 0141 211 3026.
The Chaplaincy Centre is on the Ground Floor, near the main entrance. The Chapel is open at all times and is available to patients, vistors and staff as a place of quiet reflection and prayer. Prayer mats and books of the major faiths are available alongside other resources. The Chaplain’s office is next to the Chapel.
The Chaplaincy Service delivers spiritual and religious care to all people. Spiritual care addresses the fundamental human need to have a sense of peace, security and hope particularly in the context of injury, illness or loss. Healthcare Chaplains do this by being attentive to the patient’s story, looking for sources of strength and resilience, valuing the person and what is most important to them. Religious care can be a crucial aspect of this. Healthcare Chaplains work with other NHS staff to ensure that these needs are met and, where appropriate, in partnership with local faith and belief groups.
Please visit our web page for more information on the Spiritual Care and Healthcare Chaplaincy Service.
An NHS Healthcare Chaplain is always on-call and ward staff can arrange for them to be paged. A Roman Catholic Priest is also available at all times.Contact Tel: 0141 211 3026
