Works to improve six of Glasgow’s community health and care centres is being rolled out, with a focus on improving consultation and clinical areas as well as improvements to office and admin spaces.
Projects will range in size and scale and cover health and care centres in Baillieston, Bridgeton, Shettleston, Govan & Elderpark, Govanhill and Thornliebank, with work scheduled to be complete by the end of the year, managed by hub West Scotland through Redpath Construction and Fleming Buildings.
John Donnelly, head of capital planning at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “This planned investment is part of our programme to improve our primary care estate. The work will bring significant benefits to both patients and staff, delivering better outcomes for the communities we serve.”
The projects consist of alterations, refurbishment and repair of the buildings to ensure that they are maintained to a high standard and to ensure that treatment and care can be delivered in an environment appropriate to post pandemic patient needs.
Iain Marley, chief executive of Hub West Scotland, added: “Hub West warmly welcomes the opportunity to continue our valued partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde through the delivery of this important programme. The investment of £4.4 million will address maintenance requirements and deliver improvements to existing facilities, including the provision of additional consulting and treatment rooms and agile office accommodation. We are delighted to be working with Redpath Construction on our first project together and continuing our relationship with Fleming Buildings on these essential projects.”
Susan Cardwell from Redpath Construction said: “This is now our 5th NHSGGC project but our first of hopefully many in primary care. Our team are looking forward to building strong relationships with Hub West Scotland and delivering an exemplar level of service for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.”
