Doune Health Centre
We are delighted to be working with NHS Forth Valley again on the construction of a new £1.3m project to create a new single storey health centre in Doune.
The new health centre will provide a wide range of health and social care services to the local community. These include physiotherapy, podiatry, counselling and services to support people with long term conditions such as diabetes, dementia and COPD (a common respiratory disease). There will also be more opportunities to help patients improve their own health by providing additional support and advice on diet, exercise, managing medicines and giving up smoking. In addition, there would be improved facilities for the existing GP practice as well as accommodation for a range of visiting outpatient and services such as antenatal and child health clinics.
Tom Steele, Director of Estates and Facilities for NHS Forth Valley, said: “The aim is to create a new purpose-built health centre to meet the future needs of the growing local population.
“This will make it easier and quicker for people to access the care and support they require in their local community and reduce the need for them to travel to hospital for treatment.”
