Visiting times:

Visiting times are flexible to suit the needs of our patients, their family and carers.

We are piloting a change to our visiting times. This means:

  • We have no set visiting times
  • Please discuss with the person you are visiting and staff when it would be good for you to be here
  • We will always welcome and encourage your involvement and support
  • Sometimes we may need to ask you to leave the ward temporarily, to ensure privacy, safety, space and rest for patients
  • If you have any questions please just ask.

Sometimes patients would like a family member with them to provide support. If this is the case we can accommodate a member of family or carer to stay overnight . If you wish to stay please speak to the nurse in charge

It is lovely to have children visit but please supervise them at all times.

Mealtimes

Approximate mealtimes are 
7.30 – 8.30am for breakfast 
12.00 – 1.00pm for lunch 
5.00 – 6.00pm for the evening meal

Family, friends and carers can play an important role in encouraging patients with small appetites to eat a little bit more. It is important that you discuss with staff if you can help with mealtimes on wards.

The Healthcare Chaplains for Lightburn Hospital can be contacted on 0141 211 3026

The Chaplaincy Service delivers spiritual and religious care to all people.  Spiritual care addresses the fundamental human need to have a sense of peace, security and hope particularly in the context of injury, illness or loss.  Healthcare Chaplains do this by being attentive to the patient’s story, looking for sources of strength and resilience, valuing the person and what is most important to them. Religious care can be a crucial aspect of this. Healthcare Chaplains work with other NHS staff to ensure that these needs are met and, where appropriate, in partnership with local faith and belief groups.


 

Please visit our web page for more information on the Spiritual Care and Healthcare Chaplaincy Service.

If you have a general  enquiry you can email us on chaplains@ggc.scot.nhs.uk and our patient leaflet can be accessed here NHSGGC Spiritual Care Team Patient Leaflet 2019.

An NHS Healthcare Chaplain is always on-call and ward staff can arrange for them to be paged.  A Roman Catholic Priest is also available at all times.
