Today I was visiting the great team at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, now in their new location at Little France.
I have fond and emotional memories of the old Sick Kids hospital as many of you will know. My boy James has Haemophilia and was in and out of the old hospital by the Meadows many many times as a wee one. I have sketched the beautiful Victorian building many times in the past.
But now we have a brand new children’s hospital to visit, thankfully for us not so often now, but along with the new location there is a new name.
And so instead of visiting ‘The Sick Kids’ as many would have known the old building, I was today visiting and sketching the also beautiful and very striking ‘Royal Hospital for Children & Young People’.
