I spent three weeks working as an auxilliary nurse at the hospital in 1958. My purpose wass to make a study of some of the children and write a dissertation for my college course. I have fond memories of the experience and still have my dissertation. T he buildings have now gone but I have been back to the area to look and visit the area around as my father's family all came from the area.
I was a patient for 6 monthes when i was 5-6 yrs old. I appeared on the front page of the yorkshire post when it was getting ready to close down. Happy memories apart from one nurse. please get in touch
