Singing doctor serenades patients with Christmas carols

A singing doctor at Raigmore Hospital has been cheering up young patients in hospital for the holidays.

Junior doctor Ryan Coetzee has been calming his young patients on the children’s ward at Raigmore Hospital by singing Christmas carols to them.

Dr Coetzee, who also makes balloon animals and cracks jokes, says he was inspired by Robin Williams film Patch Adams, as well as singing nurses in his native South Africa.
