Announcing #GLTU15 – Gartnavel Hospitals, 28th April

I’m happy to tell you that #GLTU15 has now been fixed for the afternoon of Tuesday, 28th April at 2pm. We’ll be visiting the libraries at Gartnavel: the General and Royal Hospitals, the Beatson and the Public Health Resource Unit. I had a preview before Christmas, so pop over to the post I wrote then for more pictures – it was a fabulous afternoon and I learned a lot about the variety of work in health librarianship. Many thanks to Shona McQuistan for all her work organising this.

Getting to Gartnavel is easy – it’s well served by buses on Great Western Road (there’s a stop just next to the hospital) or by Hyndland Station (via the footbridge – turn right on the bridge then left at the bottom of the steps.) I don’t recommend driving – the carpark is always full, though there is the option of paying to park at the nearby Pond Hotel.

We’ll meet just before 2pm at WH Smith’s at the main entrance to Gartnavel General. There’s a fair amount of walking between buildings, so dress for the weather – if it’s nice, we can enjoy the grounds. If it’s not, we’ll run! The visit will finish by 5pm, after which there is the option of a traditional GLTU curry. Indian Platform is just across the road and opens, conveniently, at 5.

How to book? Numbers are limited to 10 so I haven’t bothered with an Eventbrite page. Contact me by leaving a comment below, tweeting @AnabelMarsh or emailing anabelmarshATgooglemailDOTcom. Make sure to tell me whether you are booking for the visit, the curry or both. I look forward to seeing you there.
