Information and guidance for public, NHSGGC staff, and community-based services.  Hospital visiting restrictions now in place.

Play and Entertainment


Play is an important element of a child’s time in hospital. An outdoor play area at the entrance to the hospital has disabled-accessible installations. Play specialists are based in the indoor play zone area to work with children ahead of treatment. There’s also a part-covered roof garden where young patients can enjoy a range of activities in the fresh air and for children to be brought out to the roof garden in their beds.

Science Centre

To entertain children whilst they wait for their outpatient appointment, the hospital has been fitted out with an array of interactive activities provided by the Glasgow Science Centre and funded by Yorkhill Children’s Charity. These innovative “distraction therapy” installations provide a range of hi and low tech approaches that will delight young patients or their siblings during any visit to the hospital.


A 48 seater cinema - the medicinema - has been specially created in the new hospital to provide first class entertainment to our young patients during their stay with us.

Food & Drink

There is an Aroma cafe on the ground floor near the main entrance.  Meals and shops are available in the adult hospital.
