Musselburgh Primary Care Centre Opens Its Doors

Musselburgh Primary Care Centre is set to welcome its first patients on Monday 30 April 2012 as services move in to the state-of-the-art, £20 million health facility.
All NHS Lothian’s health services locating to the new Centre will be operational and accepting patients next week, including paediatric and adult outpatient clinics, speech and language therapy, clinical psychology, children’s services, podiatry, physiotherapy, community nursing and community dental services.
The three GP practices are planned to move in on a phased basis within the next two to three weeks.
 David Small, General Manager, East and Midlothian Community Health Partnership, said:  “It is very exciting to be ready to accept patients into the brand new Musselburgh Primary Care Centre.  I am confident that patients and staff will be impressed with the quality of the facility and to have this modern, first class, healthcare facility on their doorstep."
“I would also like to thank all our staff involved in the move.  The smooth and successful transfer of services is down to all their hard work and effort."
 Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said: “It is fantastic to see Musselburgh Primary Care Centre about to open and treat patients, and this is a prime example of how continued investment in our NHS is benefiting patients, by providing them with quality care as close to home as possible.
“Investment in health is a top priority for the Scottish Government and we have committed to spending over £2 billion on improving NHS infrastructure over four years.”
Musselburgh Primary Care Centre was completed on time and within budget.
