A Palliative Care Specialist Inpatient Unit at Borders General Hospital, which will be partly funded by a bequest from a former nurse, has been given the ‘green light’.

A business case for the development of the Unit was approved by NHS Borders Board at its meeting in Selkirk last week.

According to the BBC, the new unit will be partly funded through a legacy of over £500,000 left by former nurse Margaret Kerr. Miss Kerr, who died in 2009 at the age of 83, left the bulk of her estate in trust, to be used to benefit hospices in Scotland.

In recognition of this, the Board has agreed to name the unit ‘The Margaret Kerr Unit’. Miss Kerr’s legacy will be applied in its totality to the creation of the new unit.
