New Aberdeen hospital

Aberdeen’s Baird Family Hospital and ANCHOR Centre


Project Overview

About the project

The scheme is the largest project to be procured through the Health Facilities Scotland Framework.

The Baird Family Hospital is being built on the site formerly occupied by the Foresterhill Health Centre and Breast Screening Centre on the Foresterhill Health Campus.

It will unite all maternity, neonatal, reproductive medicine, breast and gynaecology services, as well as providing a patient hotel and dedicated teaching and research facilities.

The ANCHOR Centre will attach to the existing Radiotherapy Centre and bring all haematology, oncology and radiotherapy day and outpatient services under one roof. There will also be a dedicated lounge for teenage and young adult patients, an aseptic pharmacy to produce chemotherapy treatments and dedicated teaching and research facilities.

The new facilities will help to modernise patient care and facilities at the Foresterhill Health Campus, Europe’s biggest healthcare site, and is part of NHS Grampian's continued investment in new and improved facilities across the North East of Scotland.

"We are delighted to announce the formal signing of the Baird and ANCHOR project. Both projects will provide world-class facilities for staff, patients and their families, and an environment that has been designed with accessibility, quality and patient care firmly at the centre.

"We would not have reached this stage if had not been for the commitment and dedication of our combined project teams who have faced numerous challenges professionally and who have worked collaboratively to enable the project to proceed. For their support, I am truly grateful. We look forward to seeing the buildings emerge in the coming months.”
