Nurses take part in walk for heart unit cash

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A TEAM of nurses took part in a mem­ory walk to raise money for a heart unit that cared for a 21-year-old pa­tient be­fore her death.

A group of 20 the­atre nurses from the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal in Glas­gow com­pleted an en­ergy sap­ping ‘Four Hos­pi­tals Walk’ in Oc­to­ber, which helped raise more than £2000 for the Golden Ju­bilee’s Scot­tish Adult Con­gen­i­tal Car­diac Ser­vice (SACCS).

The fundrais­ing walk in­volved a trek from the new Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal on Glas­gow’s South side, to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal. The group then walked to Gart­navel Hos­pi­tal in Glas­gow’s west end, be­fore go­ing onto the West­ern In­fir­mary.

Rhona Ni­col­son, from Glas­gow, whose daugh­ter Eilidh, 21, passed away this year at the hos­pi­tal was among the walk­ers.
