Royal Victoria opens doors

THE new Royal Victoria Building at the Western General will throw open its doors today.

Locals, patients and relatives will be given a chance to look around the new state-of-the-art facility between 1pm and 4pm before it swings into operation.

It will become a landmark in healthcare history when it opens as the first of its kind in Scotland with 100 per cent single en-suite rooms.

Dave King, project director, said: “We are really proud of this facility and we are looking forward to taking people around the building and letting them see it for themselves.”
