University Hospital Crosshouse incident statement by Joh Burns Chief Executive

The terrible events of Thursday 4 February 2021 on the grounds of the University Hospital Crosshouse and in the town of Kilmarnock will no doubt have had a massive impact on all those involved.

Our thoughts and condolences are with all those involved.

We have increased the staff care support available to our staff, and we are

encouraging any members of our staff who have been affected to take advantage of

the support available – whether that is by calling our helplines and speaking to a

member of the staff care team, or attending the staff wellbeing hub.

I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the professionalism of the

staff who were involved in the incident. This was a particularly challenging incident,

and our staff reacted with care and compassion.

In terms of the incident, we are assisting Police Scotland with their investigations. As

this is an ongoing investigation, we are unable to provide any further information at

this time.

Visitors to the hospital should note that the car park at the physiotherapy Department

will remain closed until Police Scotland have concluded their investigations.
