Cardinal praises hospital on its 90th anniversary
CARDINAL Keith O'Brien and the Speaker of the House of Commons have sent messages congratulating Erskine Hospital near Glasgow on caring for exservice men and woman for 90 years.
Among other well-wishers are the Rt Rev David Lacy, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and Sir Jonathan Sacks, Britain's Chief Rabbi. Col Martin Gibson, chief executive of the hospital, said: 'These messages so vividly confirm the fact that Erskine is recognised far beyond the Scottish border tor the incomparable work it has been doing for nine decades."
Erskine Hospital was founded in 1916 to take in maimed and wounded soldiers from the battlefields of Europe during the First World War.
