In­pa­tient unit to move for Ac­cord re­vamp

Paisley Daily Express - - Brexit Is Already Having An Impact Before It Even -

Pais­ley’s Ac­cord Hos­pice has con­firmed de­tails of the de­cant of its in­pa­tient unit while a ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment takes place.

The £750,000 project is to take 26 weeks, start­ing in De­cem­ber.

Dur­ing this time, the hos­pice says it will con­tinue to pro­vide in­pa­tient care at a de­cant fa­cil­ity at Mon­trose Res­i­den­tial Care Home, in Foxbar.

A spokesman for Ac­cord said:“Health­care professionals should con­tinue to re­fer pa­tients as nor­mal.

“All our other ser­vices will con­tinue to be pro­vided at our main site – 7 Mor­ton Av­enue, Pais­ley.

“Our tele­phone num­ber re­mains as 0141 581 2000.”

The re­fur­bish­ment will pro­vide sin­gle rooms, in­di­vid­ual gar­den ar­eas, cen­tralised ser­vices and an up­grade of ameni­ties.

The cur­rent lay­out of the in­pa­tient unit has been in place since 1997.

There is cur­rently a mix of sin­gle, and shared same-sex bed­rooms.

Feed­back from pa­tients and reg­u­la­tors suggested that the hos­pice’s phys­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment needed im­prove­ment, how­ever.

Bosses at Ac­cord have as­sured pa­tients and fam­i­lies that they will be kept up to date on the re­fur­bish­ment.

“Through­out this pe­riod we will keep you abreast of de­vel­op­ment and progress through our web­site and so­cial me­dia plat­forms,” the spokesman added.

“If you re­quire any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, please do not hes­i­tate to get in touch with Brian Hunter, Clin­i­cal Ser­vices Man­ager, or He­len Simp­son, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive.”
