TUNNOCK'S have sent 2500 teacakes and caramel wafers to NHS staff at the new Louisa Jordan hospital.

Factory bosses ordered up a massive batch of the tasty treats to recognise the efforts of health and construction workers who have worked tirelessly to prepare the new centre.

A company spokesman said: "Over many years here in Scotland, people finishing marathons and half marathons have been given a Tunnock's biscuit to help restore their energy.

"All these men and women working so hard to create a new hospital in record time deserve a huge pat on the back and a free Tunnock's chocolate biscuits for their efforts.

"It's just our way of applauding them."

Chief Executive of the NHS Louisa Jordan, Jill Young, said: “Our contractors and NHS staff on site have been working around the clock to make sure we are ready to support the NHS in Scotland.

“During this time, the outpouring of support we have received has been incredible. Whether this is a donation of goods or services, or sending us kind messages online, these make such a difference to everyone here at NHS Louisa Jordan.

“On behalf of the entire team, I would like to say a sincere and heart felt thank you.”
