Constituency Profile

The River Clyde is the northern boundary of the seat which includes Glasgow Pollok, Shieldhall, Linthouse and a section of Govan. It also contains one end of the Clyde tunnel and one of the largest acute hospitals in the UK, the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, which opened in April 2015 on the site of the old Southern General.

Council estates, tenements and some high-rise flats occupy the constituency. Social deprivation and poor housing are serious problems in areas such as Nitshill and Priesthill. Aside from high levels of unemployment and drug problems, the constituency is home to Scotland's biggest Tesco store, at Silverburn.

Labour’s Johann Lamont has held the seat since the parliament’s inception in 1999.
