The Decontamination Services Department has won the hospital's Best Decorated Ward competition, which is held every year to help bring some Christmas cheer to patients who unfortunately have to spend the festive season in hospital. Second place went to David Erskine Ward and the X-Ray Department was awarded third place.

This year the competition was judged by Anne Halsey (Friends Chairman), Sandra Busby (Staffside Representative) and Amanda Pritchard (Deputy Chief Executive) and prizes were handed out on Thursday 16 December. The judges also awarded special mentions to Nell Gwynne Ward and Saturn Ward for their efforts.
