DSSR is proud to see the completion of the first stage of the Theatre Improvement Initiative for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The new initiative will see a significant shift in the approach to paediatric operating theatres.

Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity:

“In 2018, Dr. Alyson Walker, Paediatric Cardiac Anaesthetist, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, embarked on a transformative journey destined to reshape the landscape of paediatric surgery at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow, touching the lives of over 10,000 children each year.

“Today heralds a new standard for paediatric operating theatres as the first phase of the Theatre Improvement Initiative was officially opened, with Dr Walker helped by patients Riley, 9, and Scarlett, 11.

“Guided by Dr. Walker’s vision and in partnership with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, the million-pound initiative aims to create a more compassionate and empathetic environment for patients, their families, and the dedicated staff who care for them.

“The Theatre Improvement Initiative marks a significant milestone in advancing the commitment to patient-centred care from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow. The initiative is poised to influence the design of children’s operating theatres worldwide.”
