Work gets underway at £17m Gorbals Health Centre
July 5 2017
Gorbals Health & Care Centre is one of a series of new health hubs the facility is being delivered by Morgan Sindall to designs by JM Architects on Sandiefield Road and will host a mix of services including four GP surgeries, a dental practice, social services, treatment rooms and community space.
By supplanting outdated facililities from the 1970s and introducing a range of new clinical services the centre aims to reduce hospital pressures by providing more community-level care. Delivered in tandem with Page\Park’s Woodside Health & Care Centre on Doncaster Street the project follows on from completion of similar builds at Eastwood and Maryhill.
David Williams, chief officer, Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership (HSCP), commented: “The Gorbals and Woodside are two of Glasgow’s most deprived communities, with some of the worst health outcomes in Scotland. The new centres are being specifically designed in a way which will help further break down the barriers between services and help to create a seamless pathway between services for patients and service users.”
Gorbals and Woodside will open their doors by the end of 2018.
