Work is due to start in December this year and is expected to complete in June 2009.

Greg Fitzgerald, Galliford Try chief executive, said: “The financial close of this project underlines Galliford Try's position as a leading PPP player in the health sector across the UK.

“We look forward to working with NHS Fife to deliver a modern, high quality healthcare service for the community.”
