East Lothian Community Hospital


The new East Lothian Community Hospital is to be built within the existing Roodlands Hospital Campus in Haddington.


NHS Lothian recognises that the clinical services based at the current premises in Haddington (Roodlands and Herdmanflat) are currently housed in poor, cramped and old buildings, which are not adequate to meet the needs of current patients or of a growing population and are a barrier to service integration.


A significant constraint imposed on the design was the requirement to ensure continuation of clinical services throughout the construction of the new hospital. This required a detailed review of existing clinical services and infrastructure to allow us to develop a robust development control plan that identified key clinical and operational functional requirements and to carefully consider all decant and demolition works. A phased demolition strategy is currently being developed to ensure safe segregation of hospital and construction activities.
