NHS Lothian and the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership are working to deliver the Firrhill Partnership Centre.

The aim of this project is to create an integrated primary care facility, combining General Practice and NHS community health services in the Firrhill area of
Edinburgh

The plans include the relocation of Craiglockhart Medical Group and its branch surgery at Oxgangs providing one single surgery and the relocation of Firrhill Medical Practice into the Firrhill Partnership Centre. It also includes plans for the provision of new clinical facilities for podiatry, community nursing and child health.

There will not be any City of
Edinburgh Council services provided from the new building, however there will be 10 workstations providing a base for council staff.

Hub South East Scotland Ltd, NHS Lothian and City of
Edinburgh Councils development partner, is delivering the project and have appointed GRAHAM construction to build the new centre.

Hub South East Scotland Hub South East Scotland Ltd was established in 2010 to provide development services throughout the Lothians and Borders. It was the first of five Hub companies to be set up across Scotland as part of a national initiative to develop cross agency community facilities which will support better joined-up public services. Hub South East Scotland is a joint venture development partnership between public sector service providers (NHS, Councils, and Emergency Services), Scottish Government (through Scottish Futures Trust) and a private sector consortium.​
