Victoria Ambulatory Care Hospital
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
The New Victoria Hospital opened in June 2009 replacing the Victoria Infirmary which had occupied a site across the road since the late 19th Century. The new hospital is a day case and ambulatory care centre. Clinics, radiology and day case surgery surgery services are present.
There is a 23 hour ward attached to the day surgery unit. There are also downstream medicine for the elderly wards on-site. Clinics and plaster room are to be found on the ground floor and theatres on level 1. There is also a library on level 2, within the staff facilities section.
There is an Aroma Cafe in the main atrium and an Aroma dining room on Level 2, offering hot food. However, there is an assortment of coffee shops, restaurants, sandwich shops and takeaways located in the nearby Battlefield area.
There isn't an orthopaedic department, as such, at the Victoria. It functions as a 'spoke' attached to the QEUH. However, the offices for the National Brachial Plexus Service are located here.
The new Victoria is directly across the road from the old Victoria in the heart of the heart of the South side of Glasgow.
Car - It is easily accessible by car from the M77 or M74. There is limited parking on site and in an underground parking. Most of the surrounding roads are marked with double yellow lines or are for residents only. It may be possible to park on Langside Road, which runs around Queens Park and up behind the old hospital site.
Train / Bus / Bike - Public transport may be your best option when based here. Mount Florida train station is only a 2 min walk away. From here you are just a short 15 min journey into the city centre with trains regularly running in both directions along the "Cathcart Circle". There are also ample buses which pass through the surrounding area. The 34A connect directly with the QEUH and the 34 stops nearby. You can walk from the city centre however this will take around 50-60 min.
