Despite its size, this huge hospital has been designed to make it very easy for you to get to your destination. From the hi-tech touch screen information points and the barcode self check-in to the friendly faces of our guiding volunteers and landmark artworks at key points throughout the hospital …everything is geared towards making it simple to get around. From the moment you step inside the new hospital, you’ll be struck by the bright and airy surroundings of this most stunning atrium.
If you are attending as an outpatient you can check in using the letter we sent you when you arrive – just like at the airport. Scan in your hospital letter at one of the scanning check-in points, confirm your details and you’ll be shown where to go next. It’s a really easy system to use but if you prefer one of our friendly volunteers will be happy to help. When you arrive at your outpatient waiting room, keep an eye on the screen – it will call you to your clinic room.
Lift system There are four wards on each level: A, B, C and D. Wards A and B are accessed by the lifts sign posted as Arran on the ground floor; and wards C and D are accessed by the lifts sign posted as Bute. These lifts use smart technology to get you to the ward you want as quickly as possible. You press the button panel outside the lift and it will direct you to the best lift for you. All you need to do next is to get inside the lift and it will take you to the correct floor. There are no buttons inside the lift.
