Health Complex for Stranraer

STRANRAER’S £6.3 million health complex is a step nearer its completion date of March, 2004.

Dumfries and Galloway Health Board have now approved the outline business case which will be submitted to the Scottish Executive for their go-ahead.

Included on the development planned for the Waverley and Dalrymple sites are a replacement for the existing Garrick Hospital and a new Health Centre.

Favoured option for the project takes in Dalrymple Hospital. The Primary Care Trust are committed to buying the disused Rhinsdale House from Dumfries and Galloway Council for an agreed price. This will be refurbished for rehabilitation services.

That would allow the remainder of the accommodation in Dalrymple to be upgraded to provide acute service and palliative care beds and the maternity unit.

New buildings on the site will provide a new operating theatre/endoscopy room together with X-ray, outpatient department and accident unit.

There will be 20 medical beds and 14 surgical beds with elderly medicine/rehabilitation and day care services provided through what are described as 28 step-down beds and two continuing care beds supported by an eight to ten place day centre.
