Work will begin on Kilsyth’s new state-of-the-art health centre in January after the Scottish Government gave the project its final seal of approval.

NHS Lanarkshire’s full business case for the development has now been approved by the Scottish Government’s Health Directorate’s Capital Investment Group.

The £7.8 million development will be located next to the swimming pool in Kilsyth town centre.

The new health centre is part of a package of proposals to develop three new health centres in East Kilbride, Wishaw and Kilsyth.

Health secretary Alex Neil said: “Having the right facilities in the right place is important to people across Scotland and this development is a prime example of how continued investment in our NHS is benefiting patients, by providing them with quality care as close to home as possible. This is just one example of many major health projects for the people of Lanarkshire and right across Scotland.”
