"Excellent care"

About: Raigmore Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

My son was admitted to the children's ward in Raigmore Hospital last month with an abscess that needed drained.

The care we received, especially from the nursing staff, was excellent. They really could not have done more to make our time there easier, and even although they were busy they always had time for a friendly smile as they went about their work.

The care from the doctors was good too, and his arm has healed very nicely, but it was the care, dedication and friendliness of the nursing staff towards us and the other patients and their families which made our unexpected stay in Inverness as pleasant as it could be.
