New Hospital Costs

STRANRAER'S new hospital will cost £3.2 million more than first anticipated.

The news came this week as a revised business case went before NHS chiefs at a meeting in the town. The report now goes to the Scottish Executive for approval.

The town's new integrated health facility could now be open by late 2005. Originally, the idea was to refurbish the town's existing Dalrymple Hospital in addition to constructing a new building.

But designers overlooked the true cost of upgrading the Dalrymple and that plan had to be scrapped. Instead, the revised design proposes a complete new hospital and demolition of the Dalrymple.

The changes increase the cost of the project from £6.5 million to £9.7 million.
