Over 10,000 frontline NHS workers have been vaccinated against coronavirus at the NHS Louisa Jordan. 

The facility provided its first jab to a bank nurse almost one month ago.

It comes as a spokeswoman earlier confirmed the hospital is "standing ready" for coronavirus patients as hospital admissions continue to rise across the board.

Since it was established in April last year, over 18,000 patients have been seen for orthopaedic treatment, diagnostic imaging, dermatology, oral medicine and breast screening clinics. 

Plans have also been put already in place for the facility to undertake 5000 Covid-19 vaccinations per day.

A spokeswoman said: "As set out in our NHS Winter Preparedness Plan, NHS Louisa Jordan is a crucial national facility which is supporting our NHS through the provision of a non-Covid pathway for urgent outpatient and diagnostic appointments.

"This arrangement allows the NHS to concentrate on providing an immediate response at local level. NHS Louisa Jordan also provides training facilities for NHS staff and students alongside blood transfusion services. 

"The facility is also now supporting the Covid vaccination roll out plans and will develop into a mass vaccination centre for the West of Scotland.

"NHS Louisa Jordan has been working with four NHS Boards to ensure that over 18,000 patients, across 14 specialties, have been seen. These include orthopaedics, diagnostic imaging such as CT scanning and general x-ray, dermatology, oral medicine, plastics, rheumatology, breast clinics and occupational health services.

"In addition, nearly 10,000 NHS staff have been vaccinated at the hospital. Plans are already in place to expand to undertake 5000 vaccinations per day.

"Just under 5000 individuals from NHS Boards, the Royal College, Universities and Colleges have also been trained using the healthcare facilities and simulations on site."
