The lion's share of the money will be spent on new dental surgeries. But some will also be spent on primary care facilities, including new health centres in Androssan, Foresterhill, and Glasgow.

Scottish health secretary Nicola Sturgeon said that the new schemes would not just improve health provision, but stimulate the economy.

‘That is why the projects outlined today represent not just better health facilities for people the length and breadth of Scotland, but also a lifeline for some of the hardest-hit sectors of our economy like construction,’ she added.
