NHS Dumfries & Galloway commence migration to new Royal Infirmary
NHS Dumfries and Galloway have begun the process of transferring patients, staff and services to a £212m hospital to supercede the old Royal Infirmary.

The all-new 344-bed Royal infirmary will take on most services currently undertaken by its 1970’s namesake, which will remain operational as the Mountainhall Treatment Centre.

Outlining their approach at the new hospital Ryder Architecture observed: “The three primary elements of the campus; the diagnostic and treatment bar, the inpatient pavilions and the women’s and children’s hospital are individually expressed to create a vibrant but ordered composition.

“The high quality palette of materials is designed to provide a richness of texture across the three components and convey the qualities of longevity, solidity and timelessness in a modern and contemporary vernacular. “

Located off the Dumfries bypass on Bankend Road the facility was delivered by Laing O’Rourke and is expected to be fully up and running by Sunday, offering patients their own single rooms each with its own computer point to allow staff to update patient records as they go.
