Thanks for that.
I'd like to see them both.  I have two variants of the Brockhall Hospital badge, which was adjacent to Calderstones.  I worked at Brockhall for a short while, prior to commencing nurse training, on the male circle.  It was a vast place with many beautiful buildings.

I was a nurse tutor at Calderstones in the 80s when it became part of Blackburn with Brockhall and nurse training was transferred to Calderstones along with staff.  At that time a Calderstones student won the design for a new badge, her name was Janab, I don't recall her family name.

Do you know the design of the new badge you mention?  I now have 4 Calderstones  badges in 2 different designs, if you search Calderstones Myk1066 they should come up for you to see.

It was a badge for Blackburn and Burnley Schools of Nursing which by then included Brockhall and Calderstones.  I am sure it featured a red rose and an arrow pointing North West. But at my age I cannot rely on my memory!
