21 October, 2021 | Local

SCOTLAND’S cabinet secretary for health and social care, Humza Yousaf MSP, has officially opened Greenock Health and Care Centre.

Mr Yousaf joined NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s Chairman Prof John Brown, members of Inverclyde’s Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) and Inverclyde Council for a tour of the £21million facility in Wellington Street, which has been operational since May.

Mr Yousaf said: “Greenock Health and Care Centre is a shining example of how investing in multi-disciplinary teams can increase capacity in primary care, allowing patients to be seen at the right time by the right person, and also help reduce GP workloads.

“As well as modernising the existing facilities, this new site will make an invaluable contribution to our wider goals of community regeneration and addressing health inequalities, which have been exacerbated by covid-19.”

As well as being a base for general practices, pharmacy, primary care and HSCP services, the complex accommodates specialist children’s services, speech and language therapy and care-at-home service.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s chief executive Jane Grant said: “Undoubtedly this purpose-built, bright, modern and fully accessible building provides an opportunity to reshape and increase services from a patient and service user perspective and provide care that is more integrated, accessible and efficient to our local communities in Greenock and Inverclyde.

“We’re already seeing the positive impact this new site is having on the community here, as well as on our dedicated staff.”

Councillor Robert Moran, Inverclyde’s health and social care convener, said: “This is a fantastic facility for Greenock and wider Inverclyde and is already proving hugely beneficial for staff and service users alike. It’s a bright, modern building with everything you would expect for a 21st century health centre.”
