Top Health Facilities

HEALTH CARE facilities at the new £10 million Garrick complex in Stranraer will match the best anywhere in Scotland, a top regional health administrator said this week.

Dumfries and Galloway National Health Service Board gave their unanimous approval to the final business case for a £6.5 million Garrick Mark II.

It will be provided by using a refurbished Dalrymple Hospital and will be built alongside the new Health Centre, now taking shape on the old Waverley Hospital site; total cost of both £10 million.

In what was the first meeting of the Board in Stranraer on Monday at which the "Free Press" was the only newspaper present, David Fraser said the people of Stranraer were aware of the need to replace the Garrick Hospital with a purpose-built facility for the future.

They wanted to make sure that the outcome for the public of Stranraer was a facility to match the best anywhere in Scotland.
