Eastwood Health & Care Centre

Eastwood Health & Care Centre
Eastwood Health and Care Centre is the development of a reference design by Hoskins Architects with contractor Morgan Sindall. The facility has been delivered by hub West Scotland in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and East Renfrewshire Council, and will be occupied by the East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), along with five GP Practices. As a ‘reference design’, the project provides a benchmark for “excellent, sustainable and good value design”, achieved through the hub procurement process; and serves as a model for future primary healthcare centres.

Located at the junction of Eastwoodmains Road and Drumby Crescent in Clarkston, the three storey building is arranged around two external courtyards, allowing a high level of natural daylight and ventilation throughout the building. The ground floor accommodates a series of bookable rooms, as well as facilities to support third sector services and out of hours community use. The atrium space supports a social enterprise café and an info zone to allow the community to access a range of information. Five GP practices are located on the first floor, with the reception desks and waiting areas organised around the central atrium, offering views out to the courtyards and the activity in the main foyer below. The second floor is the HSCP headquarters, and incorporates the latest agile working practices. The Centre is designed to provide clear orientation, wayfinding and ease of movement throughout for both members of the public and staff. A range of services are provided within the building, including: clinical consulting, podiatry, community physiotherapy, children and family social work, addiction services, rehabilitation services and adult mental health. The facility will also act as a base for health visitors & school nurses.
