Glasgow's health board is 'working on a solution' after parents raised concern about a possible coronavirus infection risk in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Children being treated for cancer are continuing to be treated in wards 4b or 6A of the adult hospital. 

Parents raised fears that families visiting children and the young patients themselves are using the same lifts as others coming into the hospital.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said some parents had requested if it was possible to provide a dedicated lift.

A spokeswoman said: "We have been working with our estates colleagues and the company responsible for lifts on a technical solution for this.

"Parents will be updated on the progress with arrangements to address concerns on the lift."

      The board said it was in "constant communication" with parents to offer reassurance about the steps it is taking to protect young patients as hospitals care for patients with Covid-19.

      "The welfare of our patients and staff is paramount as we deal with the COVID-19 situation and we are taking every action to ensure their safety.

      "We want to reassure parents that Covid-19 positive patients being cared for in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital are being managed in single cubicles with nursing and medical teams who are knowledgeable in how transmission occurs and how to keep the patients themselves, our staff and other patients safe.

      "COVID-19 patients have a dedicated pathway when coming to the hospital which sees them admitted to a dedicated area within our acute receiving unit bypassing our emergency department."
