NHS Tayside staff got into the Christmas spirit last week when Santa Claus visited Ninewells Hospital.
Santa spread some festive cheer amongst staff and visitors as he led a round of enthusiastic carol singing before the ceremony to official switch on the Christmas tree lights at the main entrance to the hospital.
Patients from the Tayside Children’s Hospital also joined in the festivities and received gifts from Santa to take back to the ward.
Ten-year-old Willis Cameron had the important task of switching on the Christmas tree lights and British Sign Language choir Signed Songs R Us also joined in with the carols.
After the event Santa spent some time with staff and patients in the hopsital.
Head of Soft Facilities Management, Billy Alexander said, “Once again we were delighted that Santa was able to take time out of his hectic festive schedule and be part of our Christmas lights switch on. Willis was in charge of the red button and he did an excellent job of switching on the lights.
“It was lovely that so many children, patients, staff and visitors were able enjoy the carol singing and the visit from Santa.”
