Royal Edinburgh Hospital Campus

NHS Lothian is redeveloping the Royal Edinburgh Hospital campus in a number of phases over the next 10 years.

The exciting redevelopment programme will replace inpatient facilities at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital with modern, fit-for-purpose healthcare buildings.

The redevelopment will also consider the inclusion of potential services on other hospital sites.

The £48 million phase one redevelopment started in Janaury 2015 and is anticipated to be completed by autumn 2016. Phase one redevelopments include new accommodation for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, older people’s mental health assessment, Intensive Psychiatric Care Service (IPCU) and the new Robert Fergusson national brain injury unit.

The redevelopment of the campus is planned to be undertaken in phased stages, beginning with phase one. In November 2014, the Scottish Government committed a further £120 million for future phases of the campus redevelopment. This will allow NHS Lothian to bring together phases two, three and four of the programme of works.
Phase Two works is likely to include, but is not limited to, a new Integrated Rehabilitation Facility, a newly refurbished MacKinnon House and a new Facilities Management Centre and work on this will be progressed this year.
