The Care Village will support the integration of local health and social care services, making it easier for staff to work together to deliver better co-ordinated, more joined-up care to local people – a key aim of the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership.

This will be achieved by bringing a wide range of health and social services together in two new purpose-built facilities – a Care Hub and a Primary and Urgent Care Centre. The Scottish Ambulance Service will also move to a new station and workshop on the Stirling Community Hospital site.

Care for older people

More than 100 beds will be created in the new Care Hub to provide short-term care, assessment or rehabilitation to older people who require additional support following an illness or operation. These services will be provided in a comfortable, homely environment to help older people recover, regain their independence and return to their own homes. 

The Care Hub will also provide support for patients with dementia and those who need palliative or end of life care.

There is also the potential for additional facilities on the site, such as a café and a hair salon, where older people could socialise and meet up with friends and family.

Primary and urgent care

The new Primary and Urgent Care Centre will provide more modern, spacious accommodation for existing health services including minor injuries, X-ray facilities and GP out-of-hours services. It will also house several local GP practices which will relocate to purpose-built premises within the new Centre.

A Team Robertson project

Robertson is involved in many aspects of Stirling Care Village. Robertson Capital Projects have provided investment funding, project management and management services as a partner in Hub East Central Scotland.

Robertson Central is the main contractor, delivering JM Architects, DSSR and Woolgar Hunter’s designs.

Robertson Timber Engineering is contracted to design, supply and install all the pre-fabricated timber panels, floor cassettes and roof trusses for both buildings, covering a total GIFA of approximately 11,000m2.

Robertson Specialist Division will supply and install roughcast/render and concrete roof tiles on one of the buildings.

Most of the new facilities are expected to be operational by Autumn 2018. Final building works, roads and car parking are expected to be completed by Autumn 2019.
