Improving woodlands - Ninewells Hospital grounds

Last month, the Forestry Commission announced funding to improve urban woodlands, and it was great to see the grounds of Ninewells Hospital included in this funding package.

Today I met the Forestry Commission's Policy & Development Officer at Maggie's Centre and was given a tour of the project. This will provide for new pathways and access for patients at Ninewells and Maggie's to be able to access the superb woodland to the south of the hospital.
