Hopes for 95m care plan progress

Plans for a 95m emergency care centre in Aberdeen have moved a step closer.

The Scottish Government has approved the business case to relocate key frontline health services onto the main Foresterhill site.

Accident and emergency, the Gmed out-of-hours service, and the hyperbaric services are among those which would be relocated.

Subject to planning approval, work could start next year, with patients being treated by the end of 2011.

Dr Roelf Dijkhuizen, medical director for NHS Grampian, said: "This is fantastic news for patients."
