Overview[edit] The hospital was established by Doctor Andrew Duncan, following the death of Robert Fergusson, a Scottish poet who died in 1774 following mental health problems caused by a head injury. Duncan wished to establish a hospital where the mentally ill could be humanely looked after. The Edinburgh Lunatic Asylum first opened in 1813, following fundraising efforts by Duncan, and monies gifted by the British Parliament.[2] Today the hospital is the main mental health hospital for the Lothian region, and has treatment services for alcohol and drug addiction. In 2005, NHS Lothian announced plans for a redevelopment of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital site, which would see a new modern hospital built in the grounds. In November 2014 Nicola Sturgeon announced a £409m public-private funding package which would be funded through the Scottish government's non-profit distributing model. The Royal Edinburgh Hospital would be the main beneficiary with £120m to complete its redevelopment. This is a form of Private finance initiative which caps private sector returns. Any surplus is directed to the public sector rather than shareholders.[3]

Rivers Centre[edit] The Rivers Centre is a clinic, established in 1997, for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It was set up in memory of the pioneering psychiatrist William Rivers (1864-1922).

Sculpture[edit] The 15 tonne granite work Abraham[4] was carved in the grounds of the hospital in 1982 by sculptor Ronald Rae and remains there permanently.
