Queen Mother’s maternity hospital closes

Published: 14/01/2010

THE historic Queen Mother's Hospital in Glasgow closed yesterday – after 46 years of delivering babies.

The site, at Yorkhill, was one of Europe’s most modern maternity hospitals when it opened in 1964. About 160,000 children were born at the hospital, which helped pioneer the use of innovations such as four-dimensional “real time" ultrasound scans.

Maternity services in Glasgow will now be centred at the Southern General and Princess Royal Maternity.
