Mental health centre bid backed

NHS chiefs have approved the business case for a multi-million pound mental health centre near the Crichton Hospital in Dumfries.

The proposed 85-bed unit at Midfield Park on Bankend Road has been designed to replace existing facilities - which are now said to be outdated.

Dumfries and Galloway Council gave the centre planning permission last year.

NHS health services director, Jeff Ace, said it was a key part of modernising provision across the region.
