STOBHILL Hospital has been given an emotional send-off by staff at a special party.

More than 400 members of staff attended the event arranged by theatre assistant Grace Carr and staff nurse Liz Simpson.

In-patient services and the casualty department will close at Stobhill next month.

Staff got together for a farewell bash in the Crown Plaza Hotel, in Glasgow, on Saturday.
