March 2012 - Children from Musselburgh Burgh Primary School sink a time capsule at the new Musselburgh Primary Care Centre giving people of the future an idea of what healthcare is like now and what it could be like in 100 years time.

Robot doctors, medical phone apps and a medical-in-a-minute are just some of the revolutionary ideas thought up by the primary six pupils in their specially designed posters.

February 2012 - Completion of the external building. 

The building which extends to 6312.5 square metres also boasts a state of the art roof. The modern, self-cleaning atrium roof provides enhanced light throughout the boulevard and reception area which includes the entrances from Church Lane and Inveresk Road.

February 2012 - David Small, General Manager, East and Midlothian Community Health Partnerships, said:  “It’s exciting to see the development take shape and on schedule to be completed in the spring. The new Musselburgh Primary Care Centre will offer twenty-first century care for the people of Musselburgh and the wider community in East Lothian.”
