Work starts on new children's unit at Raigmore Hospital

Work on a new £2m children's unit at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness is now officially under way.

It is being paid for by the Archie Foundation charity, which has raised £1.5m towards the cost so far.

The project involves extending Raigmore's ward 11 to form a dedicated children's department.

It will have a high dependency facility, play areas, a family room and a children's day care centre.
