Accident and Emergency
This is an Emergency Department. We prioritise people who have a serious injury or accident or who have a sudden serious illness or medical condition. It may be more appropriate and you may be seen more quickly by your GP or another health care professional rather than waiting for treatment here.

If you think that a life is at risk you should call 999 right away.

IF you live in the catchment area for the Vale of Leven Hospital you can attend your local Minor Injury Unit (MIU) to get urgent care for a minor injury including sprains, burns and simple fractures.
MIUs are run by highly experienced Emergency Nurse Practitioners who will assess and either treat a minor injury or, if they find a more serious problem, arrange for you to be transferred elsewhere.

Children with serious illnesses and injuries who are less than one year of age should be taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow. Children from one year on should either go to your local A&E department or to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

You can find out more about which conditions may be seen and treated more quickly elsewhere from our Know who to turn to pages.

Dental Centre
The dental centre provides a comprehensive range of oral health services under one roof.

These include access to dentists for people unable to attend a general dental practitioner, such as infirm older people, patients with long-term illnesses or special needs. The centre also accommodates specialist NHS dental services which means that 3000 patients no longer have to travel to Glasgow Dental Hospital for treatment.

All surgeries in the dental centre are designed and equipped to deliver all forms of dental treatment, from Oral Surgery to Orthodontics. 2 surgeries have been designed for special care patients that have additional requirements: surgery 11 for younger patients, and surgery 16 for sedation/adult special care. Both surgeries have the necessary equipment to allow patients to be treated under conscious sedation, if necessary.

Having all dental disciplines within one centre benefits patients and staff, as dentists can consult with each other easily, in person, ensuring that patients receive the best care available without having to be referred elsewhere.

Dental student outreach training, under the supervision of qualified dentists, takes place at the centre for students from the University of Glasgow Dental Hospital & School. The Centre holds eight student training chairs. All treatment at the clinic is carried out by Final Year Dental Students from the University of Glasgow Dental Hospital and School and is carefully supervised by a fully qualified dentist who has overall responsibility for dental care.
