A new integrated mental health centre has opened at Falkirk Community Hospital.
The new Woodlands Resource Centre aims to bring together a range of services which were previously provided at Westbank and Dunrowan day hospitals, reports the Falkirk Herald.
The facility is housed in two former hospital wards and has undergone a £2m transformation.
There are around 70 health and council staff based at the facility who will work together to provide a range of assessments, treatments, therapeutic and educational services.
Kathy O’Neill, community health services manager has said: “Bringing separate mental health services and teams together in the one place makes it easier for staff to work together and provide a more joined-up and co-ordinated service. It will also help speed up â€¨the referral process to ensure people are seen and assessed as quickly as possible.”
Chairman Alex Linkston said: “The development of Woodlands Resource Centre represents a significant investment in local mental healthcare and enables us to provide a wide range of important services in more modern accommodation.”
