Faslane naval families gifted large sacks of Christmas presents to the children’s wards at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
Nurses at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children (part of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital) received a special Christmas delivery in the form of several large sacks of presents from naval families.
The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital is a 1,677 bed acute hospital located in Govan in the south-west of Glasgow. The hospital comprises a newly built 1,109 bed adult hospital, a 256 bed children’s hospital and two major A&E departments, one for adults and one for children in addition to buildings retained from the former hospital. It is the largest hospital in Europe.
It is understood that rather than send each other cards this festive season, families from the Faslane base decided to use the money to give ill children a little unexpected cheer.
