Western General Hospital
Western General Hospital, Edinburgh
This year is the 150th birthday of the Western General Hospital site and the development of a place brief will underpin the ambitions of NHS Lothian to continue to deliver health services from here long into the future.
The proposed Place Brief will provide a flexible framework for the future phased development of the Western General Hospital site and should allow for individual projects to be delivered over the next 20-30 years. Work has already commenced in upgrading cancer service facilities with proposals in gestation for a new state of the art regional cancer centre to be built on the site in the future. A new Renal Satellite facility is also currently being progressed.
This is an opportunity for the wider community to support the Place Making for an important historic health facility in Edinburgh. It should build on the heritage of the site and the more local linkages in particular.
