Extra services to support key workers at NHS Louisa Jordan

Friday, 24 April 2020

ScotRail has added extra services to support key workers at the new NHS Louisa Jordan hospital in Glasgow.

Three early morning and four late evening trains have been added to the train operator’s timetable to help NHS staff travel to and from the temporary hospital at Glasgow’s SEC Centre.

The additional services run Monday to Saturday, calling at Exhibition Centre - the closest station to the new hospital which has been built to treat patients during the coronavirus outbreak, if required.

David Simpson, ScotRail Operations Director, said:

“Scotland’s Railway has an important role to play in supporting our country through this crisis.

“By adding additional services at Exhibition Centre station, it will help staff at the temporary NHS Louisa Jordan hospital arrive for early morning shifts, and get home late in the evening.”

Jill Young, Chief Executive of the NHS Louisa Jordan, said:

“During this time, the outpouring of support and collaboration we have received from organisations across the country has been absolutely incredible.

“These additional services provided by ScotRail will play a vital role in helping ensure that our staff can be on site to deliver the highest possible standard of care, if required.

“On behalf of the entire team, I would like to say a sincere and heart felt thank you.”
