To ask the Scottish Government when it will announce the budget for the replacement or refurbishment of Monklands District General Hospital, and how much it estimates the cost will be.
Answered by: Shona Robison 1 November 2016
The Scottish Government has welcomed the proposal from NHS Lanarkshire to embark on the process of seeking funding for the redevelopment of the hospital. As NHS Lanarkshire develop and progress the scope of the project, the budgetary requirement will become clearer and the Scottish Government will make a further announcement at that point.
NHS Lanarkshire are currently working on producing the Initial Agreement and at that point we would expect to receive an estimate as to how much it will cost.
