NHS Lothian and the City of Edinburgh Council, through the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership, are working to deliver the North West Edinburgh Partnership Centre.

The aim of the project is to create an integrated primary care facility which will include the co-location of NHS Lothian and City of Edinburgh Council children’s services to the Muirhouse and Pennywell area of Edinburgh.

The plans include new GP accommodation, additional physiotherapy, podiatry, dentistry, and child health services as well as space for community and voluntary organisations to work alongside NHS Lothian and the City of Edinburgh Council.

NHS Lothian is contributing £9.2-million to the project and the City of Edinburgh Council £1.8-million.

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.
