A different view to see the area the Hospital covered.

The house there overlooking the road was where after hours Doctors were based probably 1980s  can't remember exact time,  handy we lived very close. I was poorly struggling to breathe one evening , middle son was sent over there and Dr came within minutes Pleurisy  diagnosed. That came not long after a bout of flu . When I could go back to work ( 6 weeks off altogether ) my foreman told me to drink Mackeson  , nope didn't get on with that  :P . Not a beer or stout drinker at all.

St Williams Hospital. Unsure of the date, possibly 1920's or a bit later.

My Mum also had radiotherapy for cancer there , before I lived almost opposite .
 I remember when it was demolished and  a  JCB  or whatever ? was  being used to demolish the low wall on the bank for the new road ( High Bank now ) . He went through a mains electric cable , huge great flash  and no electricity for hours here then, It was wonder he wasn't killed in the cab. We then had a large fish tank and were so scared we were going to lose all the fish , it was about 8 hrs before it was rectified. They did all survive. So did the driver !

As time moved on St. Williams was also use for X- ray therapy for cancer. My Mum was an out patient in 1958.

The Hospital in St. Williams Way, used to be known as the Fever Hospital. My brother & I were both
taken there, when we had, I think Scarlet Fever. This was in the 1936 era - Now the Hospice.
We were wrapped in thick red blanket`s, carrying a banana & an orange each.
