Emergency Care Centre, NHS Grampian
B+A were initially appointed by NHS Grampian to develop the clinical output specifications and support the development of the Outline Business Case on behalf of the NHS Board.The project was procured through Frameworks Scotland.
The strategic objective of the emergency care centre was to provide flexibility for a re-designed emergency care pathway between community health partnership services and the acute hospital.
The facility was designed to maximise workforce flexibility and integration between acute hospital and CHP services – the assessment area accommodates the functions of a clinical decision unit, observation and medical/surgical assessment.
The 15-bed medical high dependency unit represents a significant step forward in the modernisation of critical care facilities at ARI and provides the opportunity to create a single level 2 critical care area for all medical specialties.
A further 179 inpatient beds are provided as part of the staged modernisation of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, and as a university teaching hospital, there is access to seminar rooms and conference facilities on each of the floors.
