More than just a straight replacement of the existing provision, Orchard View will enable fundamental change in the way older peoples care is delivered in Inverclyde. Staff, service users and carers have all been involved in the design of the building to ensure that Orchard View meets both the needs of people living and working there in the future. The Scottish Dementia Development Centre based at Stirling University, an internationally recognised centre of knowledge and expertise on dementia, has had a great deal of input to ensure a dementia friendly environment. Their involvement will continue through both the Service User & Carer Reference Group and input on how the building will operate once it is complete. Wider engagement with the local community has been carried out through the arts and environment strategy, which has been designed to ensure the facility is very much part of the local community

Dr Wendy Leedham, GP partner

The practice selected Apollo as our development partner for our new premises based on the high quality and individual design element of their buildings and we haven‘t been disappointed. Our new medical centre is as attractive as it is functional.
