Update on project start date - July 2015
 
NHS Lothian has received an update from Scottish Futures Trust on ESA2010 and its impact on the Bundle Programme (Blackburn Partnership Centre, Firrhill Partnership Centre and North West Edinburgh Partnership Centre).
 
The ESA2010 issue relates to revised European guidance which affects Non Profit Distributing model (NPD) and hub Design Build Finance and Maintain (DBFM) programmes. NHS Lothian have been informed that Scottish Futures Trust are working to resolve this issue.
 
The main suggested change which affects the Bundle Programme is the deletion of the capital input into the projects. The bundle currently has capital injections from both the City of Edinburgh Council and West Lothian Council.
 
A timetable for resolution and further updates are expected from Scottish Futures Trust in the near future. Until we receive this update NHS Lothian are unable to provide a timescale as to when construction will start on the Bundle Programme Partnership Centres.

Ground works to start on site in October 2014

Ground works are set to start in October in order to prepare the site for construction of the new Centre which is anticipated to begin early next year.
 
The works will involve digging up and working on pipes and cabling within certain areas of the site.
 
The works will not impact on surrounding properties and while there will be activity on parts of the site over the coming months, none of these works relate to the actual construction of the facility.
 
These works will also involve the creation of a new entrance to the shopping centre service yard from Pennywell Gardens, demolition of two buildings (Pennywell Dentist and Pennywell House), closing Muirhouse Crescent and diverting existing utilities (gas, electricity, water, telecoms) within the site.
