Plan for 110m Aberdeen care centre progresses

Plans for an "ambitious" new £110m emergency care centre in Aberdeen have taken another step forward.

The full business case was approved at a meeting of the board of NHS Grampian, and the plan will now be submitted to the Scottish government.

Accident and emergency treatment as well as the Gmed out-of-hours facility would be among the services at the base.

It is hoped the centre will be operational by December 2012.

Project director Graeme Smith said: "This ambitious project has taken shape as a result of a major effort by a wide range of clinicians, managers and the public over many years."
