I have a letter from a friend of my mother, who wishes her well after an operation in 'Bearsden' in 1939.

I think that the hospital was probably known locally as Bearsden, but was there an actual hospital of that name? I can't seem to find it. Or does the hospital have another, more formal name?

Thanks for any help.

It was probably Canniesburn hospital.

Thank you so much. I haven't heard of Canniesburn Hospital, so that is really useful.

Canniesburn Hospital was a convalescent hospital attached to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary although it became later known for it's 'plastic surgery unit.'

There was another hospital in Bearsden, Schaw Hospital

It could therefore be either of these places....
