NHS Lanarkshire select Wester Moffat for new Monklands Hospital
December 16 2020
NHS Lanarkshire have recommended that Wester Moffat go forward as the preferred location for a new University Hospital Monklands.
The chosen site won out against competition from Gartcosh and Glenmavis to secure the investment, which will now be put to the Scottish Government for final approval.
Neena Mahal, chair of the board of NHS Lanarkshire, said: “I would like to thank the public and our staff for their extensive participation during the engagement process on the Monklands Replacement Project.
“The feedback we received on the three site options proved invaluable in helping Board members to give thorough consideration to the issues of key interest to members of the community, such as travel and transport, site contamination, cross-boundary flow of patients and the socio-economic impact of relocating the hospital."
The new hospital will be delivered by a design team including Keppie; WSP; TUV SUD and Currie & Brown.
