A new lift is to be installed outside the Victoria Hospital in Rothesay to improve access to the A&E department.

News of the new facility - which will be widely welcomed by hospital users with restricted mobility - came from Bute Community Council convener Grace Strong during the May meeting of the organisation.

However Miss Strong, who also reports to the community council on health-related matters, did not give a date for the installation of the new lift.
