He stressed he was grateful to have the opportunity to chat to staff adding, “The staff in the paediatric unit do such a wonderful job all year round. I am delighted to get the opportunity to visit today and I hope the selection boxes will bring some siles to the young people who will be spending the Christmas period in hospital.”

Karen Orr, Interim Lead Nurse for Women and Acute Child Health welcomed the Mayor saying, “The Management and Staff of The Children’s Unit would like to thank the Mayor for his recent visit and kind donation of selection boxes to the children and young people. These gifts really encourage each patient and give them a little boost during their hospital stay, especially at Christmas-time. We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.”
