NHS Highland is planning a £5m revamp of Caithness General Hospital in Wick.

The health board hopes to secure funding from the Scottish government for the project, and aims to start work next year.

It could take about two years to complete the revamp of the 74-bed rural general hospital, which was opened in 1985.

NHS Highland said little had changed on the site since it was built.
