A new £15m centre providing modern health and social care in East Renfrewshire opened its doors to patients for the first time last week.

The new Eastwood Health and Care Centre is a state of the art, purpose built health and care centre for the residents of East Renfrewshire.

The centre offers a number of services including podiatry, physiotherapy, children’s services, speech therapy, district nursing, health visiting, social work and is also home to five existing GP practices which have now moved into the centre.

Other services such as smoking cessation support and adult mental health services will also offer support to local people.

East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership’s (HSCP) chief officer Julie Murray said: “I am delighted to see the product of our close partnership working come to fruition.

“The Eastwood Health and Care Centre is a valuable addition to the area, providing high quality, modern health and social care services for the 21st century.”
