Opportunities: Jobs and Commissions
In June 2014, the Scottish Government announced an investment for two new health facilities on the Foresterhill Health Campus in Aberdeen. The plans included a new hospital to replace the existing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, with the inclusion of breast screening, breast surgery and gynaecology services, as well as a centre for out-patient and day-patient oncology and haematology services.
Following a public consultation exercise in 2015, it was decided that the new facilities would be called The Baird Family Hospital in recognition of the contribution made to women’s health by the Baird family, in the North East and beyond; and The ANCHOR Centre in line with the ‘ANCHOR’ brand (Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy) which has been in use for over 20 years.
GHAT has been working with NHS Grampian to deliver the arts and environment programme for both facilities. Arts strategies have been developed through engagement with the stakeholders with the aim;
To create a well-designed, person-centred and positive visual environment for patients, staff and visitors.
GHAT is now working with NHS Grampian to deliver a total of 11 commissions across both facilities, the first of which goes out to tender in December 2021.
