Staff and patients have given the thumbs up to the new state-of-the-art children's unit at Raigmore Hospital which is now operational after the big move out of the former children's ward. The new facility, which will transform children's healthcare for a generation, has been made possible thanks to overwhelming public support for a £2 million appeal launched by the Archie Foundation in conjunction with The Inverness Courier.
