Contract Type Design, Build, Finance & Maintain
The new Tain Health Centre was part of the first collaboratively procured design, build, finance and maintain project to be delivered through hub North Scotland for the NHS, with the Forres Health Centre in Moray and Woodside Fountain Health Centre in Aberdeen completing the offering.
Handed over in June 2014 amidst a backdrop of praise from local, the two-storey centre has been equipped with GP services, dental services and integrated community team facilities, providing a wide range of health and social care services.
This is another example of the future of health and adult social care in the Highlands, with accommodation for integrated community teams working alongside GPs and dental services from one, central location.Gary Coutts

A one-stop shop for all primary healthcare needs, the innovative building has 12 consulting rooms and three treatment rooms that house two local practices; Tain and District Medical Group and Fearn Area Medical Practice.
Also incorporated in the building's design is a four room dental suite, three clinical rooms, two clinical interview rooms, a podiatry room and a physiotherapy treatment room. These come together to help enable a high quality of care in the Tain community and surrounding area.
The modern facility is situated near Craighill Primary School in the town's Craighill Terrace and will continue to be maintained by hub North Scotland throughout its first 25 years.← back to projects
