Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

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

Give & Go

As visiting restrictions have been reintrodiced at most of our hospitals, the Give and Go service has resumed at some of our sites.

Give & Go is a drop off service allowing friends/family to deliver belongings to patients or collect their laundry while they are on our wards.

Only bring a small bag that is sealed e.g. a small rucksack or carrier bag sealed with sellotape or masking tape and marked with the patient’s name, ward details and date of birth - One bag per patient please. Please try to ensure that only one person attends the hospital to hand in belongings.
