£64m Parkhead health centre goes to planning
Plans for a new £64.3 million state-of-the-art health and care centre for the North East of Glasgow have now been submitted to the local authority.
An outline business case for the North East Health Centre in Parkhead was agreed by NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde’s interim board in June ahead of its submission to the Scottish Government’s Capital Investment Group for funding.
Set to accommodate 900 staff, bringing together a number of community health services currently located at nine different sites, the building will be Scotland’s biggest health centre once complete.
BAM Construction was appointed by hub West Scotland to build the facility in 2019. The £35 million design and build contract will feature a three-storey building, spanning 10,000 sqm of clinical, support and training space and car parking. It will enable Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to develop more integrated and efficient ways of delivering critical public services across the North East of Glasgow.
Designed by Hoskins Architects, the hub will provide GP surgeries, a pharmacy, specialist children’s services, district nursing, health visitors, social work services, older people’s mental health services, learning disability services, sexual health services; addiction services, meeting rooms and a café.
