Gartcosh is the preferred site for a new Monklands hospital


NHS Lanarkshire this week launched a consultation to seek the public’s views on the replacement or refurbishment of Monklands Hospital.

And there will be a public meeting in Carluke in September for Clydesdale people to give their opinions.

Last month stakeholders looked at four options – ongoing maintenance of the current hospital in Airdrie, a refurbishment of the current hospital, a new hospital on the existing site or a new hospital in either Gartcosh Business Interchange or Drumshangie Moss near Glenmavis.

The Gartcosh option scored highest among the participants - public and patient representatives, NHS Lanarkshire staff and key partners such as the Scottish Ambulance Service - and a subsequent financial analysis of all the proposals,has confirmed a new hospital at Gartcosh as the highest scoring option.

The consultation, running until 15 October, will now give the public, patients, carers, NHS Lanarkshire staff and many other stakeholders across Lanarkshire and the wider West of Scotland the chance to share their views at public meetings and through other channels.

NHS Lanarkshire’s Board will then consider the feedback before deciding a preferred option for the outline business case for the future of the hospital.

NHS Lanarkshire are urging as many people as possible to take part in the consultation by attending public meetings and completing the questionnaire in the consultation document.

The Carluke meeting is at 6.30pm on 11 September 2018- Lifestyles Carluke, Carnwath Road, Carluke; there is also a further meeting on 19 September 2018 in the Lecture Theatre, Ronald Miller Centre, Wishaw General.
