Brighton General Hospital

£12.99

Product description

From the dust jacket:
"The workhouse of 1867 has evolved into the busy general hospital of today without any previous attempt having been made to research or record the history of this important Brighton institution. Now, after detailed research into many sources, including original documents and dusty, disregarded minute books, a member of the staff of the hospital has compiled a fascinating account of the place and its contribution to the life of the area for more than a century.
A work of great human and local interest, Janet Gooch's book will entertain and enlighten many Sussex folk who may not be specially interested in medical, social or local history. For specialists in those three areas it is a significant contribution to the literature of their subject, of importance beyond the borders of Sussex.
Janet Gooch became a student nurse at Brighton General Hospital in 1961 and became a Ward Sister in 1972 and a Clinical Teacher in 1974, having obtained the Diploma of Nursing at London University. "
