Park ranger helps hospital patients enjoy local wildlife

Help

A Scottish hospital has employed its own ranger to encourage staff and patients to make more use of the hospital grounds, in what is thought to be the first project of its kind in the UK.

The new ranger, Gordon Harper, will maintain 70 acres of land at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert. It includes a loch, a walled garden and woodland.
