NHS Lanarkshire Cancels Appointments Following Red Weather Warning

Due to the red warning which has been issued for the area, we are cancelling all outpatient clinics and treatment room appointments for the rest of the day (Wednesday 28 February) and until 10am tomorrow morning (Thursday 1 March).

Anyone who has an appointment scheduled should not attend. We will ensure any cancelled appointments are rescheduled as quickly as possible.

Chief Executive Calum Campbell, said: “As we are expecting the weather and travel conditions to worsen this afternoon, we have taken the decision to cancel all outpatient clinics today in the interests of safety.

“We do not want people travelling in dangerous conditions and would advise patients and visitors not to come to hospital the afternoon or this evening.

“We will be reviewing the position overnight and will issue further guidance in the morning, by 9am, through our social media channels in relation to Thursday’s clinics.”

Some patients who receive ambulance transport to outpatient appointments may have been contacted by the Scottish Ambulance Service to advise this service has been cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions. We will also ensure these appointments are rescheduled.

We are working hard with our staff and local authority colleagues to maintain essential services. We appreciate all the support we have had in ensuring our staff have been able to get to work.
