The Scottish Government will invest £2bn in hospital infrastructure projects to deliver better facilities for the NHS.

The government will invest in hospital infrastructures across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dunfermline, reports the Guardian.

In Glasgow, £842m will be spent on single site for a 1,109-bed facility and a 256-bed children’s hospital by integrating maternity, paediatric and acute services at New Southern General Hospital.

Edinburgh’s Royal Victoria Hospital’s new facility will receive £43.6m to provide medicine for the elderly, psychiatric treatment for older people and an adult mental health day unit.

The government will also invest £14.3m in Bonar Bridge community hospital in the Kyle of Sutherland to replace a Victorian building with a new 22-bed community hospital for elderly care and GP services.

Meanwhile, £42.9m will be spent on re-aligning Fife’s trauma, critical care and specialist inpatient services at Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital.
