ABOUT US

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde is the largest group of adult acute hospitals in Scotland –
offering many opportunities to ensure job satisfaction and career development. We
provide a wide range of services from community-based care through to the full range of
general hospital services. We are home to a number of the country’s tertiary and national
services including heart and renal transplantation.

We enjoy close links with Glasgow’s three Universities and make a significant contribution
to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Research also has a high
profile within the organisation.

Employing more than 44,000 staff, we serve a core catchment population of 560,000. Our
patients, however, come not only from Glasgow but also in some instances from the whole
of the West of Scotland and, for our national services, from the whole of Scotland.

With an annual budget of 1 billion pounds now is a particularly exciting time to be joining
Greater Glasgow’s health service. We are investing more than £750 million over the next
decade – the largest single investment programme in the history of Scotland’s NHS –
giving our hospitals and those in the south of Glasgow 21st century accommodation for
21st century medicine.

The plans for Glasgow seek to ensure that the local access to health services will continue
whilst our services are reorganised to enable patients to receive the best treatment from
appropriately skilled and supported clinical teams – be that as an inpatient, day case or
outpatient.

By joining us now you will have the opportunity to be involved in the development and re-
design of this transformation – enjoying a real chance to shape services for the future,
bringing benefit to you, your colleagues and our patients.

REHABILITATION OF     The rehabilitation of Offenders act 1974 allows people who have been
OFFENDERS ACT 1974    convicted of certain criminal offences to regard their convictions as
                      “spent” after the lapse of a period of years. However, due to the nature
                      of work for which you are applying this post is exempt from the
                      provisions of Section 4 of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by
                      virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions Orders
                      1975 and 1986). Therefore, applicants are required to disclose
                      information about convictions which for other purposes are “spent”
                      under the provision of the act in the event of employment, failure to
                      disclose such convictions could result in dismissal or disciplinary action
                      by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

                      Any information given will be completely confidential.
