About NHS Highland
NHS Highland is one of 14 territorial boards in NHS Scotland. The population is 320,000 people and we cover over 32,500 square kilometres, making it one of the largest and most sparsely populated Health Boards in the UK. We employ approximately 10,500 people making us one of the biggest employers in the region so our staff are also important members of our communities. As an organisation, we make a very significant contribution to the local economy.
Our diverse geography includes Inverness, one of the fastest growing cities in Western Europe and 36 populated islands (23 in Argyll & Bute and 13 in Highland).
