CUPAR’s new community cafe at the Adamson Hospital has taken a major step towards becoming a reality.
A project team comprising NHS Fife staff, community representatives, and the architect, will work together to co-ordinate its design.
However, fund-raising needs to continue to ensure it does go ahead.
An allocation from NHS Fife endowment funds means that the community café fund sits at just over £68,000 – but more funding is needed to reach the total.
Thanking everyone who has contributed to the appeal over the last 18 months, a spokesperson for Glenrothes and North East Fife Community Health Partnership (GNEF CHP) anyone wishing to contribute to the café fund can send donations to: Adamson Community Café Fund, Springfield House, Stratheden Hospital, Cupar, KY15 5RR.
Cupar councillor Margaret Kennedy said she was also delighted with the progress at the Adamson.
She said: “It is so exciting to see the hospital taking shape with the facilities already being enjoyed by both staff and patients.
“The addition of the café will complete our newly revitalised community hospital for many years to come.”
Phase two of the Adamson Hospital redevelopment is now underway and GNEF CHP is continuing to work closely with Ogilvie Construction Ltd.
The health centre has been partially refurbished with new consulting rooms, waiting area and reception space on the south side.
Work is ongoing on the next phase of the health centre to provide additional consulting rooms, administration offices and new rooms for practice nurses.
It is anticipated that in-patient facilities will move back early in the new year when the redevelopment is complete.
