A brand new state-of the-art health and care centre has opened to patients this week in Glasgow Kelvin.

The new £20m Woodside Health & Care Centre represents a significant investment for the benefit of the local community it serves.  A broad range of services will be provided from the new facility, including eight GP practices, children’s services, district nursing, health visiting, alcohol and drug recovery services, a day care centre for older people, a dental practice, as well as physiotherapy, podiatry and sexual health services.

MSP for Glasgow Kelvin, Sandra White, commented: “This incredible new resource for Woodside, Maryhill and the surrounding areas is hugely welcome.

“The variety and depth of service that will be housed in this centre will serve the local community for years to come and has created a hub of social care that is worthy successor to the former Woodside Health Centre.”

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Chairman, John Brown, said:  “I’m delighted to see this new Centre open its doors to patients and service users.

“It’s the latest Health and Care Centre being opened in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area and again demonstrates our commitment to improving and modernising services.”

The new Centre has been delivered as a partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC), Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), Glasgow City Council and Development Partner Hub West Scotland and their main contractor, Morgan Sindall.

It has also benefited from expertise and funding provided by the Green Exercise Partnership, as well as being part of wider partnership work led by Scottish Canals aimed at enhancing the surrounding natural environment and promoting healthier lifestyles.
