The new Eastwood Health and Care Centre has scooped another prestigious design award at the Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) Awards.  

Opened last year, the £15m state-of-the-art building won the Healthcare building category award. It has now won six separate awards since opening and is in the running for another next month. 

The centre has now won: 

  • GIA Healthcare Category Award
  • Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland Healthcare Category Award
  • Health Facilities Scotland – Design Excellence Award
  • Health Facilities Scotland – Paul Taylor Award
  • Building Better Healthcare Awards  – Best Primary Care Facility Award
  • European Healthcare Design Awards – best facility under 25,000m2

 The centre was officially opened by the Minister for Public Health and Sport, Aileen Campbell last October and houses many social care services as well as providing space for voluntary groups. 

David Loudon, Director of Property, Procurement and Facilities Management, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “We are delighted that Eastwood Health and Care Centre has won the Glasgow Institute of Architects award.  

“Eastwood was developed as the reference design for Primary Care Centres in Scotland, and the award is another endorsement of both its approach and quality. 

“This latest award is testament to the hard work of all our facilities staff who provide support for patients, local communities and staff in addition to the positive feedback from users and staff which has been fantastic.” 

Julie Murray, Director of East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “To have the building celebrated by the Glasgow Institute of Architects is wonderful and we are truly honoured to receive this award.   

“This award highlights the strategic vision and planning that went into designing and delivering such an impressive health and care centre for the Eastwood community. 

“The centre is a fantastic state-of-the-art facility that offers our local people both health and social care services under the one roof for the first time, as well as a wonderful space for community groups.”
