Financial close on the project was achieved after the full business case for the centre was approved by the Scottish Government’s Capital Investment Group.

This follows the full business case for the state-of-the-art centre being agreed by our Board in October.

The modern new centre will hosts a range of health and care services including:

  • GP surgeries
  • Physiotherapy
  • Sandyford sexual health services
  • Health visiting and school nursing
  • Social Work – assessment and care
  • Community dental services
  • A pharmacy
  • District nursing
  • Podiatry
  • Dieticians

Simon Carr, Chairman, Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), said: “I am delighted work is now ready to begin on this new centre. It is another major milestone in our plans to deliver a modern, state-of-the-art health and care centre to the people of Greenock.

“Our commitment to tackling health inequalities in the area and promoting social regeneration is clearly demonstrated by this centre and the benefits it will bring to local people.

“The national transformation of primary care means that this project is not just a simple replacement of an existing facility. It is about taking the opportunity to create a centre where people can expect to be supported by a wide range of professionals, closer to their home, and be enabled to live healthier, more independent lives.”
