Practical completion of Stobhill acute mental health wards

Partnership delivers £10.7m psychiatric facility for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde

The new wards will enable patients to recover and receive treatment in a more-modern environment

hub West Scotland has reached a significant milestone with the practical completion of new acute mental health wards at Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow.

The facilities have been delivered through the partnership of hub West Scotland, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership.

Designed by Keppie Design and developed by BAM Construction, the £10.7m project will enable greater flexibility across mental health services and deliver modern facilities for patients and staff.

Jane Grant, chief executive at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “The completion of these two new purpose-built wards will play a big part in ensuring more patients receive a range of therapeutic interventions which are planned, co-ordinated and provided from a multidisciplinary and patient perspective, through comprehensive ongoing assessment.

“They will provide modern acute inpatient mental health care, including an assessment and admission function, to a large part of our catchment area and play a key role in supporting the safe, effective and timely assessment of patients referred by community-based mental health teams and other mental health professionals.

“Ultimately, one of our key aims is to provide a platform for social inclusion.

“Working towards rehabilitation, discharge and recovery will be the primary objective at all times in order to promote independence and self reliance.”

Iain Marley, chief executive at hub West Scotland, added: “We are thrilled to have completed the new facilities at Stobhill Hospital.

“This is the eighth project that we have delivered through our partnership with NHS GGC and this programme of investment has contributed to a significant enhancement to the quality of health and social care services in our communities.”
