Chris Stirling, Site Director and Catriona Rostron, Associate Nurse Director have established a small working group of people to assist in the planning the 150th anniversary of care being provided on the Western General site. The group comprises existing and retired staff, and is supported by colleagues from the Edinburgh and Lothian Health Foundation, Lothian Health Services Archive and Artlink.
To help co-ordinate activities Carol Crowther, who until 3 years ago was the Associate Nurse Director at NHS Lothian, has returned to help. Carol trained at the Western’s School of Nursing and having held several nursing posts on the western site has many fond memories that she too is willing to share. So look out for her reminiscences soon!
The group are meeting again in August are keen to hear from existing and retired staff about their memories and suggestions for events and initiatives which contribute to the celebrations. So if you have ideas or like to be involved then drop Carol an email.
