New station signs on track for hospital patients

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Patients and visitors travelling to the Vale of Leven Hospital by train are getting a helping hand, thanks to new signs at Balloch and Alexandria stations.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has arranged for the signs to be put up, pointing people in the right direction of the hospital.

The new signs are part of a wider awareness campaign which aims to highlight the hospital and the services it provides for local people.

NHSGGC Director for Clyde Marie Farrell said: “We do get patients from all over the Board area coming to the Vale for appointments and also people visiting friends and family. We became aware that for those coming in by train, some may not know what direction to go in if they are not local.

“It’s a very simple thing but we hope can help highlight the hospital, which is a very big part of the local community.

“We would really like to thanks Scotrail who were a great help in getting this project off the ground.”

West Dunbartonshire Council Leader, Councillor Jonathan McColl, said: “We are keen to work with the NHSGGC to raise awareness of the location of the Vale of Leven Hospital. It’s great to see the news signs displayed at both Balloch and Alexandria stations which will help direct visitors to the hospital.”
