Glasgow Day Surgery Centre

Our client acquired a large shell unit (658m2 approximately) with the aim of creating a new flagship Day Surgery Centre to relocate their expanding clinic, La Belle Forme, in Glasgow City Centre. The client wanted to create a fully compliant Day Surgery Centre and Clinic in which the patient experience was as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Client’s key accommodation requirements were four-fold; a fully compliant GA Operating Theatre suite with all the necessary support and ancillary space, 6 treatment/consultation rooms, training space and, finally, substantial office and support spaces providing an attractive working environment for their staff.

Our design for the new facility, therefore, aimed to reconcile the functional and qualitative aspects of the patient experience by placing the main patient’s waiting area as a large foyer space volume at the heart of the floor plate providing visual connection and easy access to the various parts of the facility. On arrival, patients enter the bright and airy south-facing reception space from which they are directed toward the large waiting space that has been laid out to create a relaxing atmosphere before their treatment.

The full clinical accommodation schedule consists of 6no treatment rooms, 4no admin/discharge rooms, a full GA operating theatre suite with various ancillary spaces, 2no recovery rooms, a surgical staff room with changing, and an extensive plant room.

Non-clinical accommodation schedule comprises; a reception and waiting area, patient care coordination, staff training room, board room, and various offices with contemporary open-plan staff break-out space.
