Date lodged: 5 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what steps it will take to ensure that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde make greater use of the Golden Jubilee hospital to reduce patient waiting times.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 15 November 2018

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are making full use of the activity they have been allocated by the Golden Jubilee in the current year.

As you will be aware the Scottish Government has committed to expand the Golden Jubilee National Hospital to help meet future need. The Golden Jubilee will be significantly expanding its current capacity over the coming few years to help meet future capacity demand for the west of Scotland Boards, including NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
