New Aviemore hospital site shortlist unveiled

NHS Highland has identified four possible sites for a proposed new hospital in Aviemore.

The health board looked at 10 locations before deciding on the shortlist of Grainish Farm, Milton, Aviemore Technology Park and Pony Field.

It is proposing to build a new hospital and close two small sites in Kingussie and Grantown on Spey.

The new building would serve the town as well as the wider Badenoch and Strathspey area.

Nigel Small, of NHS Highland, said the potential sites were chosen after a public workshop.

He said: "These sites will now go forward as part of the public consultation, and public preference will be one of the factors considered when choosing a site.

"A final event will take place after the consultation closes to make a recommendation on the sites."

Mr Small added: "Identifying possible sites does not in any way prejudice the outcome of the consultation.

"But it does complete the final preparations which allow us to move to public consultation."
