New heart unit officially opened at Raigmore Hospital

NHS Highland's new £5.1m cardiac unit at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness has been officially opened by Public Health Minister Michael Matheson.

The service is located in the former site of the hospital's medical records library.

The project provides Raigmore with an extra theatre, as well as laboratory resources to help deal with hundreds of patients a year.

NHS Highland's board approved plans for the unit in 2010.
