Jane Grant, Chief Executive at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “The completion of these two new purpose built wards will play a big part in ensuring more patients receive a range of therapeutic interventions which are planned, co-ordinated and provided from a multidisciplinary and patient perspective, through comprehensive on-going assessment.

“They will provide modern acute inpatient mental health care, including an assessment and admission function, to a large part of our catchment area and play a key role in supporting the safe, effective and timely assessment of patients referred by community based mental health teams and other mental health professionals.

“Ultimately, one of our key aims is to provide a platform for social inclusion. Working towards rehabilitation, discharge and recovery will be the primary objective at all times in order to promote independence and self-reliance.”
