Venue

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


Group info

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!

This friendly support group welcomes patients, family members, carers and friends. Everyone is welcome to come along, whether you’ve had a diagnosis yourself, or someone close to you has.

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.
