Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, is an acute general hospital with
500 beds. Services include accident and emergency, outpatients,
maternity unit, coronary care unit and intensive care unit. There
are 11 operating theatres.
We previously inspected Raigmore Hospital in March 2011. That
inspection resulted in eight requirements and three
recommendations. The inspection report is available on the
Healthcare Improvement Scotland website http://www.healthcareimprovementscotland.org/HEI.aspx.

- ward 6C (cardiology/general medicine).
