The existing accommodation in Doune is too small for the current population and has very limited scope for extension. This physically limits the capacity to deliver the full range of services needed by the community. The building requires significant investment in terms of backlog maintenance, creation of appropriate privacy, changing areas and office accommodation.
In addition to providing the facilities capacity to meet current needs, the proposals in the Initial Agreement recognise the importance of being able to respond to the ageing local population and the rise in dementia sufferers. The new premises will enable Old Age Psychiatry Services to be provided to the local population through Doctor and CPN clinics and Dementia Link Services. Similarly, Adult Mental Health Services and Dermatology Services can be expanded from the new premises.
