NHS Lothian’s Royal Victoria Building officially unveiled
NHS Lothian’s Royal Victoria Building at the Western general Infirmary has been officially unveiled by Alex Neil MSP, cabinet secretary for health and wellbeing.

The £43.6m Keppie designed facility replaces the Royal Victoria Hospital and provides six dedicated wards for patients aged over 65 as well as an assessment and rehabilitation centre for day patients and outpatients.

Each bed is allocated a single room, each with its own en-suite shower and toilet facilities and benefit from a central courtyard garden.
A link corridor connects to the adjacent Anne Ferguson Building.

Neil said:  “The new Royal Victoria Building is a fantastic example of how patients are benefiting from a modern purpose-built facility, with 100 per cent single rooms which can help to reduce infection and promote dignity for all patients.”

Shame they spent all the money on single occupancy en-suite rooms (and before anyone starts bleating - yes studies, blah blah blah, shorter stays in hospital, blah blah, blah) and there was none left over for any Architecture
