Work progressing on Cupar's Adamson Hospital

WORK on Cupar's Adamson Hospital and health centre is progressing well.

Earlier this year the site was cleared for construction with some areas of the old hospital including the kitchen, linen room, palliative care unit and link corridors, all being demolished.

The work uncovered the old nurses home which has been at the back of the Bank Street site since the 1930s but was rarely seen by anyone attending the GP practices or hospital.

In the areas cleared by the demolitions, work has now begun to erect the steel structure to form the new two-storey entrance, which will house the main reception on the ground floor and a children's out patient unit on the first floor.

The GP practices, minor injury unit and out-patient department are still functioning on the site and NHS Fife and Ogilvie Construction have said they are doing everything possible to ensure that patients and staff are not inconvenienced while work continues.
