Royal Alexandra Hospital

District General Hospital | Paisley, United Kingdom

Hospital description

The RAH is large district general hospital serving a population of more than 200,000, derived from a mixed urban and rural areas streching as far north as Oban. It lies in close proximity to Glasgow and is run by the Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS (NHSGGC). The hospital provides a range of services to the local community, including an accident and emergency department and a community maternity unit.

The Accident and Emergency department in the hospital is very active and students have the opportunity to be very hands-on during the treatment of patients, although students do have to be proactive in getting involved with treatment as there is no single doctor in charge of teaching elective students. Electives in general surgery also receive positive reviews and teaching may be conducted on a one-to-one basis with staff amenable to students working to a self-directed elective course.
