The old Northern General Hospital

Recommended Posts

Oh what fond memories I remember all the names mentioned. Does anyone remember Sr Yeomans 5b wonderful person + Sr Clarke 5A.  Also  Sr (red lips) Coverdale ward 12 + Sr Patterson  Ward 22, friend of Sr Russ who reportedly died unexpectedly at her place whilst visiting.  Sr Russ was indeed one of the best- RIP.  I worked on Cardio Thoracic Surgery 2c for a while once qualified with Marlene (Cobb) Jeavons. Her lovely mum being one of the tutors.

Fact: a thing that is known or proved to be true

 

Care to re-phrase your comment?

My wife Chris Moore was on the old ITU at NGH (ward 2a ?) which transferred to a new Cardiothoracic Post Operative ITU  around 1970; the Cardiothoracic consultant was Geoff Smith, a really nice man who I think finished up as Cardiothoracic Professor  at Guys. Chris was a Sister there until we left Sheffield in  1976.

While working nights has a porter we got a call from the canteen staff in the clock tower who said thing were flying of the shelves. When we got there some of the staff and a couple of nurses were stood outside they said metal containers just started flying around we very nervously had a look inside and saw an empty trolley it's contents all over the floor. We personally see anything but the women did seem terrified.

I worked nights on the old wards on the Vickers corridor for many years.

I could write a book about the 'odd' things that happened on occasions during the night.

I can recall being told about one particular ward where all the pots being stored in a cupboard in the kitchen ended up on the floor in the middle of the night. I believed that the ward had to be exorcised - mainly because staff refused to work on there

I can't say I'm a big believer in such things and always try to find a logical reason why something had happened - but sometimes there just wasn't a reason........

Sadly Geoff Smith passed away about a year ago. He continued to work at the NGH until his retirement.
