Case Study – Aberdeen Community Health and Care Village

Add to Scrapbook

Aberdeen Community Health and Care Village has been described variously as a treatment and diagnostic centre or a “community hospital without beds”. It was commissioned by NHS Grampian in 2004 to bring together a number of services located in disparate sites across Aberdeen to one convenient location.

The building houses the services of outpatients, dental, sexual health, radiology, podiatry, physiotherapy, dietetics, speech therapy and minor surgery.  This case study looks at how clarity of purpose, consultation and collaboration have been key to the delivery of the project.
