West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital

Health Board

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde

General Information

The West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital is on the site of the former Royal Hospital for Sick Children, at Yorkhill.


Although the long-term plan is for this site to close, a substantial number of staff are still based here. Until April 2018 a minor injuries unit operated from this site.

From an orthopaedic perspective, it is currently one of the ‘spokes’ for the QEUH.


There is a WRVS café in the reception area. There is also a large number of coffee shops and restaurants nearby, around the Kelvingrove and Finnieston area.

Orthopaedic Department

The following services are based here:

  • Upper limb fracture & elective clinics

  • Selected lower limb clinics

  • Spinal fracture and elective clinics

  • Pre-assessment

Furthermore, a number of Orthopaedic Consultants have offices on-site. 

Travel Information

West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital is located in the West end of the city. 


Car - If travelling by car there is easy access to the Clydeside Expressway which will lead to the M8 or Clyde Tunnel. Parking on site is limited and although there is street parking in the surrounding area, it is mostly metered and usually busy.

Train / Bus As with many city based sites, public transport is probably your best option. Partick train station and Kelvinhall Subway are a 20 and 10 mintue walk, respectively. There is also an endless supply of buses heading to and from the city along Dumbarton Road / Argyle Street just 5-10 min walk away.


Bike / Walk - You can walk from the city centre in around 40 min or cycle in around half of that.
