Public invited to tour Stirling GP & Minor Injuries unit

NHS Forth Valley are to conduct a series of public tours at the newly completed GP and Minor Injuries Unit at Stirling Health & Care Village, ahead of its phased opening from 13 August.

Part of a £35m campus within the grounds of Stirling Community Hospital the centre has been delivered by Hub East central, Robertson Construction and JM Architects to better integrate local health and social care services.

Facilities include X-ray rooms, three GP practices and a base for Scottish Ambulance Centre staff which are now in process of being fitted out.

Tours will be offered every half hour between 13:30 and 16:00 as well as 18:30 and 20:30 between 31 July and 2 August for those who present themselves to staff at the main entrance.

A 116-bed inpatient facility will be completed later in the year followed by a new ambulance station and workshop in autumn 2019.

Combining facilities will foster greater staff collaboration

I like the exterior, but the Interior is soulless!! If anyone can justify why all the money is spent externally when you spend the majority of the time Internally, I would like to know!!

Hub......the only procurement that makes you yearn for the heady days of PFI architecture. Bland beyond belief. Central Scotland seems to get it particularly bad.

As an aside, this looks absolutely nothing like the initial renders that were issued.

The god awful windows are so bored they've jumped into an impromptu game of tetris. Then you look at the trendy roof and render compilation...

Not great light for the photos but the overall form isn't too far away from the render / intent. It's better than a lot that is produced these days. Negative for negatives sake on this forum...

I quite like it. Would be nice to see more of the inside and the building in a bit more context but looks tidy enough and a well needed service to the community. Well done JM.

#7 they should have given the tiles a sweep before taking the photos. As bad as they look just now, they will be a dog's dinner within months. Bad choice of tile and poor installation by the looks of things.

#9 the vast number of out-of-it people staggering about in the place will keep the floor swept. Perhaps a cushioned carpet would have been more suitable...

I had the fortune / misfortune to visit the building yesterday as a customer. Its bright and spacious (apart oddly from the minor injuries waiting room which is tiny) and the staff really like it. Good job.
