STAFF and patient transport and parking remains high on the agenda as the migration to the new South Glasgow hospitals gets under way.
To assist staff to plan their journey to the new South Glasgow hospitals campus, a new dedicated section is now available on the Traveline Scotland website – www.travelinescotland.com
Staff will be able to plan their journeys using the website, a dedicated free Traveline Scotland app, or the 24/7 call centre, tel: 0871 200 22 33.
