All patients with appointments at NHS sites across Greater Glasgow and Clyde should continue to attend as normal unless specifically told otherwise.

Outpatient appointments are totally unaffected by new lockdown restrictions within Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Jonathan Best, Chief Operating Officer for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said:   “It is essential all outpatients continue to attend appointments as normal, as these are not impacted by the new restrictions in place and it’s extremely important we’re able to continue delivering care and treatment to patients across Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

“Patient safety remains our top priority and across sites there are a number of established pathways in place to ensure the ongoing safety of patients and staff.

“Similarly, our emergency departments and other unscheduled care routes have appropriate front door signposting to ensure people are directed to the most appropriate service in the safest and most efficient manner possible.”

  1. Great that everything is open and that it’s only visiting other folks homes that’s the problem
    And the school kids, going home after a day at school, only to go back to school the next day, how does that work, especially if they use the bus to go to school, eat in McDonalds or KFC or wherever else at lunch time.

    Not sure how visiting family in their home, is so bad and has had to be banned

    Moreover, I am told there is a number to call if you see a neighbour visiting another house. A curtain twitchers charter to blow in a neighbour ?
