New Sick Kids Hospital for Edinburgh reaches new milestone

This is what the new Edinburgh Sick Kids will look like.

This is what the new Edinburgh Sick Kids will look like.

Today (13.02.15) NHS Lothian has reached “Financial Close” for the project to build the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children at the Little France Campus.

This means that all the project related financial transactions have been completed and is a good sign that the project is proceeding well. Construction works will start on site in the next week.

The project team are now looking forward to the new facilities taking shape over the coming years and have thanked everyone involved in the project; from staff, patients and their families to partner boards, charities and other third sector organisations for helping to get this far.

This is something that Haemophilia Scotland members have played an active part in.  In particular by attending our meeting with a representative of the project team and feeding in a wide range of practical idea.
