'Super-office' for city's new hospital

19 Dec 2013

A £20.7 million administrative complex has been approved for Glasgow's new superhospital.

Staff including doctors, nurses and researchers will have access to state-of-the-art facilities for admin work, including patient record keeping at the New South Glasgow Hospitals Campus. More than 10,000 staff will be based at the new £841.7m hospital campus, when it becomes operational in 2015.

A total of 1200 work stations will be created to accommodate staff transferring to the old Southern and General Site in Govan from the Western Infirmary, Yorkhill Hospital and the Victoria Infirmary.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde say the new 'eco friendly' offices will provide consultants, other clinical and administration staff with modern admin facilities available.

The design, by BMJ architects, maximises natural light, and meeting 'pods' - private areas for staff to meet with relatives and colleagues, and 'break out' relaxation areas.

NHSGGC said the cost of the office development was contained in the overall budget of the project.

Construction work will get underway in February with the development expected to open in April 2015 to support staff transferring to the hospital campus.

The development will be sited on yet to be cleared land next to the Teaching and Learning block.
