New Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital gets planning approval
Planning permission has now been given for the new home for the Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital.
The new facility will be constructed on the site of car park B at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and will be joined to the existing hospital by a link building between child and adult emergency departments.
Work on the new hospital is anticipated to start by the end of the year once Financial Close is achieved and the Scottish Government approve the Full Business Case for the project.
