I trained in Leith Hospital,1950-1953.staffed for one year in ward4..They were truly happy days and we were given support by Miss Mitchell.(matron)Although I left leith to go to that other place(Glasgow and nursed there for 38yrs.I have never forgotten Leith Hospital and all the staff I knew,and ofcourse the motto PERSEVERE.

I was just browsing because this morning I met for coffee two nurses trained in Leith. I got my certificate in 1955 . I married and went to live in New Zealand. I felt without the training I got in Leith I could not have succeded in N.Z
