Construction begins on ‘transformational’ Clydebank health centre

BAM Construction has revealed construction work is underway on a new £19 million health care centre in Clydebank.

Delivered in partnership with hub West Scotland on behalf of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Clydebank Health Centre will be located within the Queens Quay development area of the town and is due for completion in autumn 2021.

The three-storey facility will bring together six local GP practices to serve 40,000 people. The new centre will also accommodate district nurses, health visitors and social work, dental and podiatry departments.

Bruce Dickson, regional director at BAM Construction said, “We are delighted to be working with hub West Scotland and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde on another transformational health project. At a time when questions are being asked about the contribution of infrastructure to society, once opened, this will be a great example of how a building can improve a community. It’s also good to be back working in Clydebank where we have previously delivered the College and Leisure Centre, the latter also for hub West Scotland.”

Iain Marley, chief executive of hub West Scotland added, “We are thrilled to be proceeding with the construction phase and to continue our highly valued partnerships with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and BAM Construction. This investment will deliver high quality facilities that enable transformational improvements in the delivery of health and social care services in West Dunbartonshire and our commitment to community investment means that the project is already benefitting local communities through jobs and business opportunities.”
