Larbert Woods is the UK’s first woodland-based rehabilitation programme for cardiac patients in hospital grounds. The brief was to transform and revitalise the woodland and green space surrounding Forth Valley Royal Hospital, bringing it back into sustainable management and realising the grounds as an asset for health improvement for patients, visitors, staff and local people. Larbert Woods became a high-profile Green Exercise Partnership Demonstration Project, showing how NHS greenspace can be designed, improved and managed for multiple health and wellbeing benefits. As a result of the work that has been done, a local developer, attracted by the redeveloped grounds, has invested £13 million to transform A-listed Larbert house, stable block and walled garden into 20 luxury apartments, 18 mews and 19 detached houses.
