NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (NHSGGC) is proposing to change the way rehabilitation services are provided for older people in the North East of Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire. Included within the proposal is the transfer of services currently provided at Lightburn Hospital to other sites in the North East of Glasgow. If the services are transferred it will result in the closure of the Lightburn Hospital site.
The services affected by the proposal are accessed by patients from across the whole of North East Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire. This proposal primarily affects older people; however it is recognised that some carers and family members will also be affected.
NHSGGC has produced a leaflet that explains the proposed changes, the reasons for the propsal, how you can get more information about the proposal, and how to comment on it. Click here or tap on the below image to download a copy.
