Cancer ward at Raigmore Hospital closed by C.diff reopens

A cancer ward at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness that was closed last week following three cases of Clostridium difficile has reopened.

The three patients were treated in isolation and the oncology ward 2C was closed temporarily to new admissions.

NHS Highland said the risk to healthy patients, visitors and staff had been minimal.

The frequency of cleaning in the hospital was increased as part of efforts to prevent further cases.
