Raft of Glasgow health buildings set for improvement works

HUB West Scotland has revealed that a £4.4 million investment in works to improve six of Glasgow’s health and care centres is being rolled out in communities across the city.

Projects will cover facilities in Baillieston, Bridgeton, Shettleston, Govan & Elderpark, Govanhill and Thornliebank, with work scheduled to complete by the end of the year, managed by Hub West Scotland through Redpath Construction and Fleming Buildings.

The projects consist of alterations, refurbishment and repair of the buildings to ensure they are maintained to a high standard and that treatment and care can be delivered in an environment ‘appropriate’ to post-pandemic patient needs.

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.”

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.”
