Eastwood Health & Care Centre, Glasgow

Client Objectives:

The purpose of this project has always been much more than the simple replacement of the existing facility and services.
This development provides an opportunity to support integration to enable and facilitate fundamental change in the way in which health and social care is delivered to the people of Eastwood. The underlying principle is to tackle health inequalities by improving the delivery of health and social services that are shaped around the needs of patients through the devel0pment of partnerships and co-operation between patients: their carers and families. A significant agilemflsing office is located in the building for East Renfrewshire community based staff. to foster closer integration with NHS GG&C.
This builds upon the successful model initiated by them at Barrhead Health Centre.
