NHS Grampian’s board were to be asked to approve the outline business case for a new £8.1 million health centre today.
Clinics at Denburn, Northfield and Mastrick will be replaced under the plans for the new multi-million-pound health centre.
Members of the board have been asked to green-light an outline business case to develop the facility in the Greenferns area of Northfield.
A report to the board said: “Following a site option appraisal, a preferred site has been identified at Greenferns.
“The site is within an area zoned, in the Aberdeen City Development Framework, for mixed community provision.
“It is located close to the newly-built Heathryburn and Orchard Brae Schools.
“Aberdeen City Council has confirmed a willingness to sell the site to the board in order to facilitate the project.”

The board has been asked to approve a “not to be exceeded” budget of £650,000 for purchase of the site to include all related fees and surveys.
City centre patients at Denburn who do not wish to travel to Northfield will be found places at a new facility at the Health Village on Frederick Street.
The multi-purpose facility would include a custom-built video consultation hub, which will use cutting edge technology.
Indicative timescales for the project show the purchase of the land being concluded between May to August.
Work would start on the building in January, with an expected completion date of May 2021.
A full business case is expected to be presented to the board for approval in October.
