Planning approval granted for new Surgery
 
P
roposals for a new purpose-built GP surgery in Ratho have been approved by the City of Edinburgh Council planning committee.
 
The project will see the current surgery relocated from Baird Road to a new purpose built facility on Wilkieston Road.

Under the plans the existing property at 14a Wilkieston Road will be demolished by the developer and a new two storey building developed in its place. NHS Lothian will then lease the ground floor from the developer for the new surgery.
 
 
Plans submitted to City of Edinburgh Council
 
Proposals for a new GP surgery in Ratho have moved forward after a planning application was submitted to the City of Edinburgh Council. The project will see the current surgery relocated from Baird Road to a new purpose built facility on Wilkieston Road.
 
Under the proposed plans the existing property at 14a Wilkieston Road will be demolished by the developer and a new two storey building developed in its place. NHS Lothian will then lease the ground floor. The new medical centre will have five consulting rooms, one treatment room, a waiting area and a staff meeting room. The development will also have on-site parking and will be accessible by public transport.
