The Scottish Government has given final approval for the country’s largest hospital project in Glasgow.

The new £842m South Glasgow Hospital complex will be an integrated children’s and adults’ hospital and will replace the Southern General.

A 1,109-bed hospital will be built next to a 256-bed children’s hospital, and the complex will provide maternity, paediatric and acute services on a single site.

Public Health Minister Shona Robison said the final go-ahead is great news for people throughout the west of Scotland.

“Providing services for all ages on a single site will ensure patients can access the widest possible range of specialist services and will also bring with it increased efficiency, shorter waiting times and better continuity of care,” Robison added.

The construction of the new hospital is estimated to be completed in January 2015, while the site will become fully operational by the summer.
