Ruth Magowan, with Rod MacIntosh, Marion Preston midwife and three non-Borders nurses (Marcus Wooton, Chris 00000, Megan Dickson) ran a paediatric teaching module in 2015 as a joint venture between NHS Borders and Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. There are 120 nursing students and huge enthusiasm. A BMA Humanitarian Fund grant and private fundraising was successful in supporting this. A new nursing school is under construction, with a new lecture theatre and extra classrooms which will allow a move from EN to RGN training. It was also possible to deliver of textbooks from Maternal & Childhealth International, based in the Highlands (2015).
