Venue

Maggie’s Centre, Gartnavel General Hospital, 1053 Great Western Road, Glasgow G12 0YN

Maggie’s Glasgow is situated in the grounds of Gartnavel hospital campus. Our centre is the single storey, glass and concrete building found on the hill amongst the trees, sitting just above the car park at the main entrance to the Beatson. Follow the signposts across the campus to find us!

Directions by rail

Hyndland Rail Station is about 500m from the hospital site, where trains from both Queen Street Low Level and Central Station Low Level call. Follow the signs to Gartnavel Hospital as you leave train station and then follow signs for Maggie’s centre when you enter hospital grounds.

Coming by underground train you can change to the main line trains at Partick underground and go one stop to Hyndland Station on the overground trains.

Directions by car

When entering the hospital grounds from Great Western Road, immediately turn right and drive past the Pond Hotel. Just past the hotel take the next left, which takes you slightly uphill to a mini roundabout. At the roundabout, turn right up another slight hill and the centre is on the left hand side just past the zebra crossing. 

Parking

Car parking is very limited and the car parks can be busy. There is a car park adjacent to the main entrance of the Beatson Oncology Centre and  a limited number of parking spaces are also available just past the front of the centre itself.


Going to a meeting

Anyone affected by lymphoma (minimum age 18 years) can attend a Lymphoma Action support group.  You don't have to book or even let us know beforehand that you are coming along - just turn up, you'll be made welcome.

There is no charge for attending a Lymphoma Action support group, though donations help us to continue to provide local support. 

At your first meeting, you will complete a registration form, which also enables us to keep in touch with you about future meetings.  You can request other types of information, including our popular Lymphoma matters magazine, on the same form.

You can attend our support groups as often and for as long as you need - you aren't expected to come to every meeting and don't have to tell us if you won't be there.  If you move on but then want to come back, perhaps because of a change to your lymphoma, that's fine, too.

 


How we can support you

A diagnosis of lymphoma can sometimes feel overwhelming and it can be helpful to reach out for support. We have many different services and ways in which we offer you support, whether you have lymphoma yourself or you know someone who has. Support groups are a place where you can meet other people affected by lymphoma, share your experiences and receive information in a mutually supportive environment.

Whether you are new to lymphoma or you have been living with the condition for a while, you may have questions or concerns or maybe you'd just like to talk things through with someone who understands. You can contact our helpline services between 10am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, via phone, email and Live Chat. Find out more.
