Site Scoring Event
The Monklands Replacement Project (MRP) is NHS Lanarkshire’s exciting and positive vision for University Hospital Monklands and the local and wider community it serves, proposing a major investment in Lanarkshire’s hospital estate by rebuilding the hospital on a new site.
Monklands is an ageing hospital and most of the mechanical and electrical infrastructure has exceeded its life expectancy. Recurring failures not only have ongoing and increasing financial implications but also have an impact on the delivery of clinical services. The current facilities lack space and the buildings don’t have the right layout to ensure the ideal model of care, which requires particular departments and services to be located close together.
A new, state-of-the-art University Hospital Monklands will support the required clinical model (how clinicians will treat patients in the future) to meet the objectives set out in NHS Lanarkshire’s healthcare strategy, Achieving Excellence which has the ambition to: shift care away from inpatient treatment to day case, day treatment, outpatient and community care; develop pan-Lanarkshire hospital centres of excellence; and support the healthcare needs of the wider West of Scotland.
