The closure of the Western Infirmary and Yorkhill Hospital in June has resulted in new arrangements being put in place for residents or workers in Woodside who require out of hours or other medical help for an illness or an accident or emergency.

Adults over fifteen years old should now attend A&E at Glasgow Royal Infirmary at 84 Castle Street G4 0SF telephone 0141 211 5608. Infants and children under fifteen should now be taken to The Royal Hospital for Children (Govan) at 1345 Govan Road G51 4TF telephone 0141 201 0000.

Both facilities are open 24 hours and further information regarding their exact location and the services available is provided on the nhsggc website here. As usual all persons notifying a serious and urgent emergency should dial 999.
