You get more at the Beardmore
In my last blog I wrote a little about the importance of this year because we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee’s tenth anniversary as part of the NHSScotland family. And, of course, this also means the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre is celebrating ten successful years in the public sector – ten years during which it has become a centre of excellence for health, hospitality and learning.
So it was even more special that this is the year when the Beardmore was the big winner at the Scottish Hotel Awards only this week, walking away with eight awards on the night, including Scottish Conference Hotel of the Year and Green Hotel of the Year (Medium), as well as five individual awards for members of staff.
In fact, the Beardmore has been recognised at the Scottish Hotel Awards every year since its launch nine years ago. When you think about what a tough market conference organisation and hosting has become, and the sharp competition that the Beardmore faces, this really is an outstanding achievement. Everyone involved is due huge congratulations for such significant and consistent success. We’re very proud of all that they have done and I hope they are proud of themselves.
Alongside the exceptional hospitality and conference facilities provided by the Beardmore stands the latest addition to our services and facilities - the Beardmore Centre for Health Science. Just over a year old, and already this on site clinical skills and research centre is proving itself an exceptional resource for training and research by healthcare professionals across Scotland and the United Kingdom.
The Centre supports an increasing number of clinical trials and has been purpose built to offer a range of training options, such as the surgical skills lab and patient simulator area, where healthcare workers can perfect their techniques. As well as this, our auditorium now has in-built audio visual links to the Golden Jubilee’s theatres, cardiac catheterisation laboratories and diagnostic imaging suite.
Across both Beardmore sites, we truly offer an extensive range of facilities dedicated to those involved in healthcare. All focused on the key objective we all share – to innovate, design, develop and deliver the highest quality health care for patients and make their experience with us one they remember for its quality and its care.
And, as Scotland’s national public sector conference centre, special rates apply to our NHS colleagues – keeping money within the public purse.
The Golden Jubilee, The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre and the Beardmore Centre for Health Science - quality service, staffed by professionals we are proud of.
