Kids Need Our Ward Lobby of Crucial Health Board Meeting on Tuesday 20 December, 9.30 am, in the Board Room, J B Russell House, Gartnavel Hospital (West End of Glasgow).

On Tuesday 20 December (ie this Tuesday coming), the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board is holding a meeting to decide whether or not to proceed to a formal consultation on the closure of the children’s ward (Ward 15) of the Royal Alexandria Hospital in Paisley. It is vital that Board members attending the meeting hear the voices of children, parents and relatives who believe that the closure would be a catastrophe for our children and for everyone who cares about maintaining this first class service.

Consequently, the KNOW campaign intends to organise a lobby of the Board meeting and is urging anyone who can make it along this Tuesday to do so. We hope to be able to provide transport to anyone who requires it and would ask, therefore, that anyone who would like to come along and/or who would need transport reply to this email.

We understand that Santa will be there to lend his support to the campaign to keep our kids’ ward open! He may even bring a helper or two so you are encouraged to bring your children along.

It’s difficult to exaggerate the impact the closure of Ward 15 would have on our kids and our communities so please make every effort to come along this Tuesday and make your opposition to the proposed closure known.

Hope you can help on Tuesday and keep in touch at the following email address, remember if you need transport from Paisley, let us know, also if you need directions to the building let us know.

I was looking for the RAH ‘Royal Alexandra Hospital’ Paisley and I found the NHS website a bit of a nightmare to find the telephone number so I have decide to put it on the Paisley Blog so that people can find it a bit easier, I will also put it on the useful contacts section “which shall be live soon”

The Royal Alexandra Hospital is bursting at the seams as the intake area for the hospital is huge and the staff are under immense pressure which they cope with admirably but anyways here is the contact information for the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley

The Telephone number is 0141 887 9111

The Royal Alexandra  has a frequent  bus service the timetables can be found in our travel section by going to
