Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford had a first look at the new GP and Minor Injuries Centre at the Stirling Health and Care Village last week.
The Facility has received £35 million of funding from the Scottish Government and is due for completion next year. However, construction has now completed for the GP and Minor Injuries Centre.
A number of local GP practices will now be located at the centre, on the site of Stirling Community Hospital. The Minor Injuries Centre will also see the Scottish Ambulance Service based in the same location, enabling closer working between health and care services.
Commenting, Bruce Crawford said:
“This is a remarkable building, beautifully designed and constructed, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have a walk around prior to it opening for business.
“Every inch of the design of this building has taken into consideration how it can be the best possible example of health care for patients, as well as a positive working environment for our hard working health care staff.
“The Stirling Health and Care Village is an incredible investment into Stirling, ensuring that we have the most up to date and future proofed health care services right here in Stirling. I know that this will be a much-loved facility for local people, and I am delighted with the progress I have seen so far.”
