Funding approved for new health centres
July 3 2012
The new centres will be delivered in partnership with private sector firms via West Hub Scotland Ltd, a vehicle for delivery of new community facilities.
Chief executive Robert Calderwood said: “Over the next three to four years, Glasgow will see us deliver the next stage of modernisation of our community/primary care facilities.
“We have already seen patients benefit from a range of new state-of-the-art buildings including the New Stobhill and Victoria Hospitals and new health and social care centres in Barrhead, Kirkintilloch and Renfrew.
“To add to this, building work is well advanced on the New South Glasgow Hospital which will be one of the biggest healthcare facilities in Europe. Progress has also been made on new health centres at the Vale of Leven and in Possilpark.”
Outline business cases will now be written for the quartet with construction likely to commence in 2013 through to 2014.
Design teams have not yet been appointed.
