Bangour Hospital Nurses on Strike April 1982

Jim Devine Branch Secretary at Banour Hospital, Scotland built up a formidable progressive COHSE branch at the Hospital, along with the Branch Chairman "Tam"

In 1980 the branch set up a well produced printed newsletter after purchasing a professional printing press "Bangour Free Press"

Jim later became a charismatic and energetic COHSE regional officer becoming the undisputed champion of NHS staff in Scotland and later still a Labour MP.
