Concern grows over lack of new hospital progress

NHS claims it remains committed to developing services in Lochaber

CONCERNS have been raised by community members after a project to replace a 50-year-old hospital has ‘fallen silent’.

In 2015, the Highland Council (HC) bought the site on the Blar Mor, next to the health centre, to replace the Belford Hospital.

The eight-acre plot was being sold by Tesco as part of its portfolio of surplus sites and had set an imminent closing date.
