St Brendan's Health and Social Care Re-provision

Modernising health & social care facilities in Barra

NHS Western Isles and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar are fully committed to modernising health and social care facilities on Barra to ensure that they are modern, safe and fit for purpose.

The  Board is currently working with local authority partners, Comhairle nan Eilean  Siar, to progress a significant project to upgrade the existing hospital and  social care facility.

Following  a comprehensive feasibility study  commissioned in 2011, the preferred options for the replacement of the current  health and social care facility were identified as:      

  • New build health and social care ‘hub’ on current site      
  • New build health and social care ‘hub’ on current site (to include local GP surgery

More recently, the Scottish Government  approved the Investment in Health and Social Care in Barra and Vatersay –  Initial Agreement. This gave the green light for the project to proceed  to the Outline Business Case stage.
