If you are attending a hospital appointment at the National Spinal Injury Unit, Glasgow during COP26 (31/10/21 - 12/11/21) and will come by car/public transport, please check www.getreadyglasgow.com to plan your journey

Ahead of appointments:

COP26, the UN climate change conference is starting in less than a month.  The Glasgow expressway will be closed to all traffic, making other roads busier.  Public transport will also be busy and subject to changes, so please remember this should you have to attend hospital or a pre-arranged appointment at this time.

The event, which will be held at Glasgow’s SEC, runs between October 31 and November 12 but delays are expected before, during and even after COP26 ends.

If you are going to be attending hospital during the period of the event, then please take a look at the Get Ready Glasgow website to check the travel information and plan your journey.   There will be major delays and you will need more time than usual. The website will be regularly updated with the latest road closures and alternative routes.



The Get Ready Glasgow website has all the information you will need around travel and transport.   If you still have questions, there is a customer service line that is managed by Glasgow City Council: 0141 276 2014


If you have any concerns attending the Spinal clinic during this time please contact Karen McCarron, 0141 201 2563. We will be happy to change your appointment date or change your appointment to a telephone consultation
