Scottish Epilepsy Centre commences construction
February 9 2012
Situated close to the Institute of Neurology at the Southern General Hospital the residential centre, designed by Anderson Bell Christie, will offer assessment, diagnosis and treatment services for those with the condition.
Paul Moore, chief executive of Quarriers, said: “Our existing centre is coming to the end of its working life. The new Scottish Epilepsy Centre in Govan will be a centre of excellence and enable the charity to be at the forefront of assessment and diagnosis of epilepsy in the UK and further afield.
The centre is scheduled to open in the spring of 2013.
A red sandstone Victorian school designed by Bruce and Hay, just outside the central Govan conservation area, was controversially pulled down to make way for the scheme – despite opposition from within the local Linthouse community.
