  I gave birth to 2 girls at Ross hospital in 1967 and 1969. It was a wonderful place with separate rooms for all mothers. We had a funny incident in 67. Ron McKinnon of Rangers Football Club was in the vestibule as his wife had given birth. He was quite a looker so all us mums got titivated up, baffies and flowery nylon dressing gowns and we walked up and down the corridor eyeballing him like silly teenagers! Well some of us were very young!

Hi Ross, Glad I gave you a wee smile, they are rare enough on the boards these days. smile.gif I don't know much about the Ross Hospital but I will bet there are a number of folks, who like me, peek in but don't post much, who do. Like you I am spending the day with a wee grandson who is a bit out of sorts. He had his 12 months shots yesterday and is running a wee fever. Life is good. It has been an interesting year, all in all. Hope 2017 is a cracker for you and your family and that you get some info. about the Ross Hospital. See how a slid back on topic (kinda) before Martin noticed I was wandering again? lol GB

  Aw Gallus you made me laugh....thank you !
Very rarely look at the boards these days but I have 2 upset bairns and its 4 am...your little quip brought a smile to my face.
Is the Ross not a private hospital now ? similar to the Nuffield in the West End.
I do miss the humour that was once the trade mark of this board. Like life in general now its all bitterness and division...Trump.Brexit,Indyref...tragic.
I hope you are well and enjoying life.

  This conversation went on for many years and ceased a decade ago but it's still here. I'm so glad it is though. Is anybody still listening?

  I was born in 1961 in the Ross because all maternity beds in Glasgow were full I ended up with cerebral palsy because the staff starved my brain of oxygen and told my mother how would she feel if she hit her head of a brick wall I might have cerebral palsy but it didn't stop me qualifying as a LAWYER!

  I was born at Ross Hospital on 14 February 1959. I hope I am related to the original Rosses of Hawkhead, and that there are still descendants alive today that I can trace. Please leave a note if you know of these Rosses and I will try and make contact with you. I am investigating (or at least trying to) my family tree and this would be an interesting addition. (But probably not, but you never know!!). My mum was Ellen and my dad Bobby but he probably wasn't at my birth as that is a relatively new phenomenon.

  My eldest was born in the Ross in 1969 - it was an overspill from Rottenrow.

My Youngest was transferred to Ross memorial hospital in Dingwall from the Raigmore in 1971,

So 2 Ross hospitals almost 200 miles paart!
