Ellen Glen's celebrates ten years' service

STAFF and patients at a city resource for the elderly and mentally ill patients are celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Ellen Glen's House in Gilmerton – a 60-bed campus providing patients with a peaceful environment – will mark the occasion with afternoon tea followed by a fireworks display.

It was opened under a PFI scheme in 1999.

Dr Charles Winstanley, NHS Lothian's chairman, said: "This is a time to celebrate ten years of quality care."
