Work on Hospital could begin next Year

WORK ON the replacement for Stranraer’s Garrick Hospital could begin as early as next year.

The Scottish Executive have cleared the way for the project by revealing that it will be funded out of the public purse.

With the start in the next few days of a new £2.8 million Health Centre on the site of the old Waverley House in Dalrymple Street, the prospect of a new integrated health facility is better than it has ever been.

When completed, the project will offer major new services all under one roof.

The Health Centre, which will be three times the size of the existing one, will provide modern facilities for the 17 doctors working there as well as accommodation for nurses and other staff.

Dalrymple Hospital, which was opened 25 years ago this year, will be completely refurbished.

Rhinsdale House will be bought from Dumfries and Galloway Council.
