Elanic Hospital Glasgow hosts ‘first look’ events for healthcare professionals

  • 25th June 2024

The first open event was aimed at consultants who are considering practicing at the hospital and GPs who will be advising patients on treatments available at the 15,000sq ft city centre facility

Private healthcare operator, Elanic Medical, has launched a series of open evenings aimed at introducing Glasgow’s newest hospital to the community.

Its first event, held on 12 June, was aimed at consultants who are considering practicing at the hospital and GPs who will be advising patients on treatments and the high-quality care available at the 15,000sq ft city centre facility.

The evening featured a presentation about the new hospital, including its industry-leading equipment, and a tour of the premises, which are still under construction.

A further open evening is now being staged on 26 July.

Elanic Hospital Glasgow, designed by NVDC Architects and being constructed by Redpath, will open to patients later in the summer and is expected to create around 75 jobs over the next two years, including theatre nurse roles as part of its high staff-patient ratio care provision.

The clinic is headed by Vivek Sivarajan and CJ Tollan Sivarajan, who are both consultant plastic surgeons, with Sivarajan also leading the medical team and Ashleigh Jolly leading clinical services.

Professor Jason Leitch CBE, Scotland’s former national clinical director, has joined as a non-executive director, providing robust governance support and helping to ensure patient safety and quality.

Kristian Campbell, managing director of Elanic Medical, said: “Welcoming leading members of Scotland’s healthcare community to our new Glasgow hospital was a significant milestone and we’ve had some brilliant feedback about our plans.

“We already have some of Scotland’s top surgeons based at the hospital and look forward to announcing the consultants who are joining us in due course.

“Quite simply, we want to give people more choice and ensure they’re able to access healthcare when and where they need it.

“Waiting times for many elective procedures are too long for those who are in chronic pain or who need to get better to be able to do their jobs.

“Being in the city centre, close to major rail and road links, and many of the city’s leading businesses will also make the hospital convenient for appointments.

“We’re already taking bookings for consultations and it won’t be long before our first patients are coming through the door.”

Elanic Hospital Glasgow is located above Elanic’s existing surgical clinic, founded more than 10 years ago, in Bath Street.

The new facility will offer a range of elective treatments and surgeries including orthopaedic and bariatric procedures to self-paying and private medical insured patients from across Scotland and the North of England.

The hospital features a state-of-the-art ultra clean airflow operating theatre and a day surgery theatre, equipped with the industry’s most-advanced technology, complemented by 12 recovery bays.

For patients who require overnight care, there are air conditioned, en-suite bedrooms including a specialist enhanced care dependency bedroom.

The team expects to treat up to 60 patients weekly at the hospital, with a further 12 patients treated weekly at the cosmetic surgery clinic on the ground floor.
