New Hospital a Step Closer

MAJOR steps were taken towards the construction of Stranraer’s new £11.5 million hospital this week.

At a meeting of Dumfries and Galloway NHS Board in Dumfries, members approved a recommendation to accept a tender from Northern Irish firm John Graham (Dromore) Ltd, subject to the satisfactory completion of contracts.

It means the construction phase is now underway with members left to finalise a start date for construction.

The hospital, which will cost more than £11.5 million, is to be built on the site of the Dalrymple Hospital, part of which has already been demolished.

When finished it will provide facilities for palliative care, renal and maternity services, physiotherapy, day surgery and investigations, medical inpatients, outpatients, rehab, and accident and emergency.

Board Chairman, John Ross, said:

“This is a major step forward for this development.

“Stranraer needs new hospital facilities and this integrated hospital complex will provide a modern, high quality environment in which our staff can continue to provide high quality care for the local community.”
