Old loo becomes a new health clinic


A former public loo has been given a new lease of life as a state-of-theart health clinic after it was fully converted by its new owner.

The abandoned public toilet in Queen Street car park, Broughty Ferry, has been fully refitted and rebranded as Active Health under the leadership of podiatrist David Cashley.

David first submitted his plans to convert the property in October of 2020, telling the Evening Telegraph: “I don’t see a toilet, I see a prime piece of real estate.”

Since then, the building has been completely refurbishe­d, with high-tech medical equipment and new staff being added.

The clinic opened to patients on March 22 and has already enjoyed a growth, with David claiming to serve between 25 and 30 patients a day.

It is staffed by four podiatrist­s, two physiother­apists and a massage therapist, with a chiropract­or soon to join them.

David said: “When we first started this place up we were expecting a lot of sports people in, anyone that owns this kind of clinic does, but what we saw was quite surprising.

“Due to the pandemic there’s been a lot of older people struggling to get out as much and what they’re finding is that walking has become quite an issue for them.

“Because of they’re coming to that us.”
