About the unit

The West of Scotland Regional Heart and Lung Centre, based in Clydebank, is a dedicated unit for planned and urgent operations and procedures. One of the largest heart and lung centres in the UK, it combines existing heart services at the Golden Jubilee with cardiothoracic (heart and lung) services previously provided by Glasgow’s Western and Royal Infirmaries and thoracic (lung) services from Hairmyres Hospital in Lanarkshire. Spread over three floors of the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, facilities at the centre all include seven theatres and four cardiac catheterisation (cath) labs - special x-ray rooms for the diagnosis and treatment of blood vessel blockages around the heart. The new centre is also home to three of our national services - the Scottish Advanced Heart Failure Service (including the heart transplant unit), the Scottish Pulmonary Vascular Unit and the Scottish Adult Congenital Cardiac Service.

Adult Cardiac Surgery

Major open heart surgery is carried out by a team which includes surgeons, anaesthetists, intensive care physicians, nursing staff and other supporting professionals. At the Golden Jubilee National Hospital the cardiac surgery service is continually monitored and supported by a robust clinical governance structure which encompasses the whole team.  

The Golden Jubilee National Hospital’s heart (cardiac) surgery department performs a wide range of procedures:

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG);
  • Valve Surgery to repair or replace heart valves;
  • Adult Congenital Cardiac Surgery procedures; and
  • Other open heart surgical procedures.

Most of our patients are referred by cardiologists in local hospitals or from our clinical teams at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital.
