Health board asks for help naming its new buildings
NHS Grampian wants Shetland folk to help provide names for two major new health buildings on its Foresterhill hospital campus site in Aberdeen.
The buildings, a new hospital and a centre costing around £120 million, will serve patients from the Northern Isles as well as the Grampian area.
The new hospital will include maternity, gynaecology, breast screening and breast surgery services. It will also include a neonatal unit, a centre for reproductive medicine, an operating theatre suite and research and teaching facilities.
The new centre will provide out-patient and day patient investigation and treatment services for people with cancer and for those with blood disorders, including non-cancer conditions as well as cancers. The centre will also include pharmacy services and research and teaching facilities.
Both are in the early stages of planning, and are expected to be developed by the end of 2020.
The details can also be found at www.nhsgrampian.org/involvingyou then clicking on “Projects and Consultations”.
Suggestions for names should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Freepost, NHS Grampian (no stamp is required). The closing date for submissions is noon on Friday 13th March.
All suggested names will be considered by a panel involving clinicians, managers and the public. The agreed names for both buildings will be confirmed during April.
