    I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

    A clootie dumpling scone has been created by the chefs at Princess Royal Maternity Hospital, Alexandra Parade in Glasgow, Scotland. The scone recipe is being kept secret and is popular with the patients and is based on healthy ingredients. It is also available for visitors to buy.
