A special award has been made to the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit at the Southern General Hospital by a leading Scottish charity.
The unit’s Clinical Services Manager Margaret McKillop received the carved wooden award from Spinal Injuries Scotland (SIS) as part of the charity’s 50th anniversary celebrations to acknowledge their close working relationship with the staff over the years.
Mrs McKillop said: “We have a very special relationship with SIS and there is mutual support for the work carried out by both organisations to help patients’ rehabilitation to return home and move on with their lives.”
The spinal injuries unit houses a number of teams and services, including rehabilitation, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and a family unit.
Liz Anderson, SIS Chief Executive, added: “Scotland should be proud that we have in this country a world leading example of how to treat people with a spinal cord injury and their relatives.
“It is in recognition of this fantastic working relationship that we decided to make this unique award in our 50th anniversary year.”
