Dr Margaret McGuire, NHSGGC's Nurse Director said: “We are delighted to welcome these 56 new paediatric nurses to our staff at the RHC.
“As a Board, it is always a great privilege for us to be able to support the development of newly qualified nurses. We are perfectly placed to give them a wide range of opportunities to put their talents to use in delivering high standards of care for our patients and communities.
