The Scottish Government has announced an increase in funding for the NHS in the South of Scotland.
NHS Dumfries and Galloway is to receive an extra £1.1 million in funding over the next year, bringing the total to £6.2m.
NHS Borders will receive an extra £737,000, bringing the total to £4.4m.
The money is part of an additional £65m for health boards that has been announced by the Health Secretary, Shona Robison, to deal with the rising costs of new drugs.
"Our NHS services face challenges as a result of the increase in patients, with more complex illnesses, and the rising costs of expensive new drugs.
“This additional investment of £4.4m increases the resources available .... and will help alleviate these pressures, ensuring our NHS can continue to deliver effective and sustainable care to patients in the area."
