Glasgow Royal Infirmary unannounced inspection May 2011
Glasgow Royal Infirmary is in the east of the
city and provides a wide range of services including, an accident
and emergency department and maternity services.
We previously inspected Glasgow Royal
Infirmary in June 2010. That inspection resulted in three
requirements and nine recommendations.
We carried out an unannounced inspection to
Glasgow Royal Infirmary on Wednesday 4 May 2011.

the following areas:

areas of strengths as well as areas for further improvement,
including recommendations for actions.

removed from the HEI website, as the inspection took place more
than 16 weeks ago. Please contact NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde for
further information on progress against this action plan.
