Surgical ward at Raigmore Hospital closed by C.diff

A cancer ward at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness has been closed to new admissions following three cases of the bug Clostridium difficile.

NHS Highland said two affected patients were still at Raigmore and were being treated in isolation.

A deep clean is now under way at 4C, which is a surgical ward.

NHS Highland chiefs said they were not treating the cases as an outbreak because they had not been traced to a common source.
