East Lothian Council’s Planning Committee granted planning permission for the building of a new community hospital at Roodlands, Haddington, on the 9th March 2016.
The new hospital, being developed by East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership and NHS Lothian, has been designed by Keppie. This project is being delivered by NHS Lothian’s development partner, Hub South East Scotland, and Morrison Construction has been appointed as the preferred contractor.
The development will bring more services back to the county which are currently located in other areas and will provide a sixty per cent increase in inpatient beds.
David Ross, Keppie’s Design Director and Healthcare lead says: “We’re delighted that the project received unanimous approval at the recent planning committee meeting, with several Councillors commending the design proposals and the connection to context and landscaping.”
The Outline Business Case for the project is now being finalised and this will set out exact costs, hospital services and timescales for the project. This will be submitted to the Scottish Government for approval later in 2016. Please follow the link to the fly-through video on the website: www.nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk/elch.
