Pictures of Harlow Wood Orthopaedic Hospital

Photographs scanned from booklets that it is surmised were given to Student Nurses at the hospital. Written pages give a brief history of the hospital conditions of Service. Details of training for the Orthopaedic Nursing Certificate, Silver medal and prizes. Nurse recreation and sports club. The pictures have been divided into two page pages for ease of viewing. Unfortunately the booklets are not dated but I suggest the are in the 1950’s and 1960’s as Miss Prickett is given in one and Miss Custerson in others.

  • 1968 – 1969, I remember being lowered down into the pool on the stretcher at the back of this picture, it was the most frightening thing ever. I spent many hours in this pool doing physio.
