REFURBISHMENT on the labour suite in Dr Gray's Hospital in Elgin are set to begin this week.
Upgrades to ward three at the hospital will begin today. It is hoped the works will be completed within the next few months.
Gill Valentine, clinical midwifery manager for maternity services in Moray, said: "We are pleased that the refurbishment of the labour suite is getting under way.
"We appreciate labour and birth are a very special time and wish to reassure you that normal service and choices remain available at ward three during these works.
"That includes continued use of the current birth pool until our new one is fitted and ready for use."
Alasdair Pattinson, Dr Gray's general manager, added: "We are delighted to see that the new birthing pool initiative for Dr Gray's Hospital will become a reality within the next few months.
"This is one of several infrastructure initiatives planned for the Dr Gray's Hospital site by NHS Grampian in the forthcoming year, which will allow us as a wider hospital team to continue to deliver first-class healthcare to the population of Moray and beyond."
