Replacement for the Garrick Hospital

GO-AHEAD for Stranraer's £6.3 million replacement for the Garrick Hospital has been given by the Scottish Executive.

Work on the project should start before the end of the year with the complex open by 2004.

A design team will be appointed by the end of this month and it is anticipated a planning application will be made in the spring.

Portpatrick farmer John Ross, chairman of Dumfries and Galloway National Health Service Board, told the "Free Press" this week

"This is excellent news for people living in Stranraer and surrounding communities who can now look forward to a complete modernisation of hospital facilities.

"Combined with the new Health Centre, which is currently being developed, this represents a very significant investment in rural health services.

"Staff have put a lot of hard work into the planning process which has now resulted in full approval for the project, It is an outstanding achievement for all who were involved".
