Anyone with questions at Broadford's new hospital hub can head along to two public information sessions.

The facility is to be sited on land adjacent to the Dr MacKinnon Memorial Hospital in Broadford and the Broadford Health Centre.

Designs for the new hub will be on display at the events.  The first session will be held at the Lighthouse Christian Centre, Kyle of Lochalsh on Wednesday 6 February from 1pm until 6:30pm.

The second event will be held in the Portree Chamber, Tigh na Sgire, Portree on Thursday 7 February, at 1pm – 6:30pm.


Tracy Ligema, NHS Highland’s head of Community Services, North & West Division, said: "Technical representatives from the team will be on hand at these latest drop-in events to explain and listen to the views of local residents and answer any questions the public may have.

“This is an excellent opportunity for the local community to speak to the design team about any aspect of the build and design. Members from the operational unit will also be present to discuss the proposed NHS Highland services.”

If the process now progresses as planned, work should start on the new hospital in 2019 with completion by the beginning of 2021.
