The £300m Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, UK, has opened to patients following the completion of the first phase of a three-phase plan.

People with diabetes, respiratory disease and cardiac problems will be among the first treated at the hospital, according to the BBC.

The remaining phases will see services transferred from Falkirk and Stirling infirmaries.

Forth Valley Royal Hospital is largest NHS project in Scotland, with 860 beds and 16 operating theatres.

It is the first hospital in the UK to use robotic workers to carry out tasks such as cleaning operating theatres, delivering food, dispensing drugs and carrying clinical waste.

The final phase is expected to take place in July 2011, when maternity services and A&E will be transferred.
