Tributes to NHS champion.


A WOMAN who died in a crash has been named as a former health boss.

Caroline Thomson, 63, was a passenger in an Audi that collided with a Toyota Auris on the A835 near Dingwall, Ross-shire, on Tuesday evening.

Two men were taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness with multiple injuries.

Caroline was a nurse in London before moving to Inverness in the 1970s.

She chaired NHS Highland from 1997 to 2004 and was made an OBE in 2003.

A statement from her family said: "As well as being a loving wife, mother and grandmother, Caroline was someone who devoted herself to serving the Highland community.

"She was particularly well-known for her time as a board member and chair of NHS Highland and in the charitable sector.

"We are heartbroken and we know that many of those whose lives she has touched will miss her deeply."

NHS Highland chairman David Alston said: "Caroline made an important contribution to the Highland community."
