Children’s hospital celebrates parents, staff and supporters


A GLASGOW childrens hospital will celebrate its inspirational parents, staff and supporters during a special service at Glasgow Cathedral this weekend.

Yorkhill’s children’s hospital – now in its 101st year – is set to move to a new home at the Southern General campus this summer.

Organised by Yorkhill Children’s Charity, Sunday’s service is designed to bring people together to share their experiences and memories of the hospital.

Shona Cardle, chief executive, Yorkhill Children’s Charity, said: “Yorkhill Hospital has played such an important role in the lives of families across Scotland and we wanted to take the opportunity to bring people together ahead of the big move.

“And while our home is changing, the mission of Yorkhill Children’s Charity remains the same – to provide world class services for future generations.

“We’ll be at the heart of the new hospital, helping Scotland’s families and have already committed more than £5m in equipment and service delivery.”

Glasgow Cathedral, located on Castle Street, is fully accessible with limited car parking at the front of the cathedral.
