4     Raigmore Day Services Centre
      Report Malcolm Iredale, Director of Finance (paper to follow)

      The proposed Day Services Centre was discussed at the October Board In
      Committee when it was agreed that the project would be progressed to Full Business
      Case through the approved NHS Frameworks process of appointing a Principal
      Supply Chain Partner (PSCP).          The Board also recognised the significant
      commitment of resource to this project – both capital and revenue – and agreed that
      further consideration should be given to the potential delivery of the planned services
      within the current NHS Highland footprint. As part of this process the Board agreed
      that the projected costs – both capital and revenue – should be reviewed with
      assurance obtained on the delivery of savings to meet these additional costs.

      The paper, together with supporting information from the Full Business Case and
      Healthcare Planners Report, update the Board on the current position.
     The Board is asked to:

         Note the Full Business Case, including the revised capital and revenue costs
         Note the Healthcare Planners Report highlighting a number of strategic and
          progress issues, together with the identification of some alternative options that
          could be pursued.
         Consider the alternatives, and agree a way forward which recognises the need to
          develop a dedicated Day Case facility together with improved capacity for renal and
