The greatest NHS hospital migration programme ever attempted in Scotland is under way... and many of you will be right in the heart of it. The planning for this huge exercise has been as meticulous as it has been daunting.
Over the next few weeks, staff, services and patients will migrate from existing sites to the new South Glasgow hospitals campus – and in some cases, to other existing NHSGGC acute sites in the city.
The logistics involved in this mass migration are almost as awesome as the challenge to build the new hospitals on the Southern General Hospital campus while the old hospital continued to function!
Now – after so many years in the planning and a few years in the building – we are ready to move in and be part of a new modern era of acute care provision to the people of Greater Glasgow and Clyde and beyond.
