The NTC patient journey

Our vision for the NTC-H is to deliver the best quality state-of-the-art, innovative ophthalmology and orthopaedic healthcare to the people of the north of Scotland.

The eye care outpatient area has been designed in consultation with clinical teams to support patient care with a seamless patient pathway through the building, providing a welcoming and pleasant environment for our patients and staff.


The NTC is situated at the heart of the Inverness Campus, an innovative purpose-built location united by a focus on life sciences and technology. The site is home to businesses, research and academia, designed as a special place to work, live, study and visit.

The 215 acre site has been developed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) and is also home to the University of the Highlands and Islands – Inverness College UHI. Behind the development was a vision for a shared site where different organisations could work collaboratively, thrive and benefit from strong links with academia and the NHS. Co-locating in a beautifully landscaped environment, patients of the NTC will find peaceful recovery in an inspirational setting. 

A rolling programme of recruitment is in place to attract:

Jayne Halcrow, Anaesthetic Lead For The NTC

If you’re aiming to take the next step in your career, then NHS Highland is a great place with lots of opportunities to do that.

Andy Pyott, Acting Service Lead For Ophthalmology NHS Highland

Training opportunities are growing, we always get good reports from people who come to study and learn from us. Because we are able to give very close supervision, we are able to mentor junior doctors or optometrists or orthoptists who are now joining the department.

Colin McNair, Clinical Lead For Orthopaedics

I can speak from experience having been a trainee myself here many years ago, its a great diverse population to work with.

Given the geographical area we are in, we’re exposed to a full gamut of trauma from a high velocity of road traffic accidents to injuries encountered by outdoor enthusiasts such as mountaineers, skiers, ice climbers as well as catering for a huge tourist influx in summer so year on year we’ve seen a substantial rise in trauma operating gear.
