Care Hub Reaches New Milestone

Care Hub Reaches New Milestone

A topping out ceremony at the new Stirling Care Village saw the final tiles being placed on the roof of the new Care Hub. The hub will have more than 100 beds and provide short-term care, assessment or rehabilitation to older people who require additional support following an illness or operation.

The £35m Care Village is a joint venture between Stirling Council, NHS Forth Valley, the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Integration Joint Board and the Scottish Ambulance Service, who plan to re-locate their existing ambulance station there from the Riverside area of the city. Forth Valley College is also keen to explore training and volunteering opportunities in the Care Village for young people considering a career in health and care.

Also being built in the grounds of Stirling Community Hospital is the Primary and Urgent Care Centre which will house a number of existing health services including Minor Injuries services, X-ray and GP out-of-hours services plus a number of local GP practices, which are relocating to the centre.
