NHS Fife is hosting a series of public information events this month to keep the public informed about the development of a new intensive psychiatric care unit at Stratheden Hospital in Cupar.
The move comes after formal approval was recently given for the construction of the new purpose-built eight-bed unit on the north-eastern part of the hospital grounds - replacing the existing facility on the site.
Construction of the £4.4m project began earlier this month and is due to be completed in Spring 2016.
As part of keeping the local community informed about how the project is progressing, a number of drop-in events have been scheduled at the hospital.
These will all take place in the south view conference room on: Wednesday, May 13 from 6.30-7.30 p.m; Thursday, May 14 from 2.00-3.00 p.m. and Saturday, May 16 from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.
There will be a number of stalls relating to the various aspects of the development, ranging from the design and construction process to the nursing and models of care that will be provided within the unit.
Representatives from NHS Fife, the Mental Welfare Commission, local patients’ groups and the building contractors will be attending and will be available to answer any questions on the project.
