The Diabetes Centre at Victoria Hospital will undergo refurbishment this autumn.
Opened in 2000, the standalone centre is sited within the hospital grounds and provides an outpatient service for newly diagnosed and existing diabetes patients, with care provided by a multi-disciplinary team.
The refurbishment, which will begin at the start of October and is due to finish at the end of November, will see a range of work undertaken including new roofing, flooring, heating, windows and a refreshed interior.
Whilst the work takes place, patients who currently use the centre for their diabetes clinic will be re-allocated appointments within the Carnegie Unit at Queen Margaret Hospital. Patients who attend for podiatry clinics will be seen at Whyteman’s Brae.
Patients who would normally have their outpatient appointment at the centre have been advised that appointments will be moved to the Carnegie Unit at Queen Margaret Hospital over the period of work.
To minimise inconvenience, the time and date of appointments will remain the same and patients will see the same health care professionals.
The existing phone number, 01592 648001, for the Diabetes Centre will remain the same during the refurbishment works.
