NHS Highland has been given a major funding boost to improve waiting times which have been among the worst in Scotland for some procedures.

The £2 million cash injection includes £1.2 million to install another Vanguard mobile operating theatre at the city’s Raigmore Hospital to help it meet national 12-week treatment time guarantees.

And new NHS Highland chief executive Iain Stewart will tell the board at a meeting on Tuesday that they are also getting £843,000 to reduce waiting times in specific specialities including ophthalmology (eye cataracts), general surgery and endoscopy.
