Dr Gray’s Hospital Investment

Investment puts Dr Gray’s at the heart of new North of Scotland Hospital Network

In 2023, NHS Grampian approved a new long term strategy for Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin, cementing its place as a key healthcare site for generations to come as part of the North of Scotland hospital network.

This includes more than £10 million in additional investment to deliver some exciting ambitions and direction for the hospital. These funds will help reinvigorate the physical infrastructure, support innovation in developing new clinical roles and career paths as well as establishing the site as a centre of excellence in training and education.

Highlights include:

  • enhanced consultant led maternity services,
  • new dedicated training facilities

Working alongside NHS Highland will also feature prominently as part of a wider a North of Scotland network.

This will offer clinicians and support staff alike a unique opportunity to help play a pivotal role in shaping the future of health care across an area spanning almost half of Scotland.

The plan for the future of Dr Gray’s also puts working with the Digital Health Institute at its heart to maximise the opportunities for advancement and innovation backed by the funding provided in the recent Moray Growth Deal.

The Alexander Graham Bell Centre is designed to support the ground breaking work being carried out in digital healthcare in the Moray region.

The £6.5 million project has created a “centre of excellence” located at the Moray College University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) campus in Elgin.

This collaborative hub will provide opportunities and facilities for new business and research, creating important and strong links between the private sector, medical practitioners and academia.
