Barrhead Health and Social Care Centre
Lead designers – Avanti Architect
We started our tour of four recently completed or under-construction health buildings at Barrhead. It was a grey and rainy day and we dodged the torrential showers to find shelter.
The new £18 million Barrhead Health and Social Care Centre was opened in 2011. It provides a wide range of health services, including GP, dental, physiotherapy and older adult day services, alongside community services such as district nursing, health visiting and home care. The centre is run in partnership between NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and East Renfrewshire Council, with both organisations sharing ownership of the building.
