The first images can today be revealed of how a new £7.6 million health centre could look.
The plans for the new Foresterhill Health Centre – which will welcome tens of thousands of patients – have now been granted conditional planning permission by Aberdeen City Council.
And work on the three-storey facility is expected to begin later this year with an estimated completion date of late 2017.
The new centre will include two general medical practices and a pharmacy as well as services including podiatry, speech and language, dietetics, community nursing, community midwifery and health visiting.
Stan Mathieson, project director, said: “This is another positive step forward for the project which will allow us to begin formal design development.
“The new health centre will offer first class facilities and construction is expected to begin in autumn.
“That is good news and I’m sure it will be welcomed by both patients and staff.”
