Work at the Cambusavie Unit in Golspie is set to get underway in the next few weeks following an announcement by NHS Highland of an initial investment of just under £250,000 to improve hospital-based services in Golspie.

Phase one will see the inpatient beds from the Lawson Memorial Hospital move into the Cambusavie Unit. It is anticipated that the Unit will operate with 22 beds by the end of this year.

Building warrants will be required to complete the 25 bedded unit, which will include having a palliative care room.

Ross Mackenzie, NHS Highland’s District Manager for Sutherland, said: “We are delighted to have secured funding which will allow us to make significant improvements.

“This work is illustrative of how we can improve facilities, become more efficient and at the same time reduce our costs.”

Phase II will focus on making best use of the space inside the Lawson building, with outpatient services moving into the newly freed up area where the beds were formerly located.
