Raigmore Hospital Information
Raigmore hospital is in Inverness and offers services to anyone from the Highland area and consequently people from Caithness and the other Highland counties often get sent there for operations, scans and other procedures. This is the major hospital in the Highlands but it may be possible to get some procedures dealt with more quickly in some of the smaller hospitals and it might be worth asking about this although consultants will usually tell you if this is possible.
