General Discussion / Northamptonshire Nursing History
« Last post by Elaine@65 on October 20, 2020, 05:50:25 AM »
Trained at Manfield Orthopaedic Hospital in Northampton. Pre-nurse 1972. Then Jan 1973 intake, completed in June 1974. Manfield closed down in 1992 and for years I searched the internet for anything related to the hospital and it's training program without success. So I started a FB page for Manfield but sadly material is very lacking so I expanded the page to include all hospitals in Northamptonshire. Here is the link:*F
If it doesn't work just look up Northamptonshire Nursing & Hospital History on FB. Happy for anyone who would like to join us. Thank you.

I'm Toni Jenkins (nee Russo)  I was in the February 1984 set. First ward Luke as a JSN.  I staffed on Braxton Hicks.. After Guy's I went on to St Mary's Paddington to train as a midwife (Aug 88). 12 years in midwifery then back to nursing. I'm current obesity nurse specialist for ECG Training and an independent nurse consultant for bariayric surgery. I'd love to hear from anyone else at Guy's in my time

Well, the final date advertised for our August 2020 News page (August 31) came and left without me again - two days ago - Apologies!!

But we managed the upload today (2nd Sept) - and here are with our fifty-third SoN News Page.

A lot of work again and I hope something to show for it.  'Collectors Corner' has new additions (St Bartholomew's 1897 (!) buckle, plus a scarce silver plated nurses belt & buckle for the Middlesex Hospital London. Mounted on its original Ward Sisters' Petersham belt).

A couple more 'National' badges - North East Manchester SoN Enrolled Nurse badge and a University College of Worcester badge - Nice.

Again another particularly difficult month. Covid 19 certainly has not helped. We look like canceling a booked flight to the UK too. Perhaps the new gallery being added for 'nursesue' will get more time now.... 

On the bright side - and yes, there is one - We are still on Crete - we were due to return shortly but have decided to remain until it is deemed safe to return, seems more sensible. It is still superbly hot. HOT! 39oC right now. We were [/u] looking forward to returning - having not seen our family for so long now. But we know many who are and have had worse times.

Enjoy the  read - make our struggle with the elements worthwhile!!...

Hi Myk.

Quite correct!  Perhaps Peter is the man for the job?.....

I started my training in January 1957 along with 27 trembling new students. We spent 3 months in PTS at Rutland House with our two nurse tutors - Sister Garner and Sister Reid (I think if my memory serves me correctly)  First time I had been to London except for my interview when the leader of the local St John Ambulance, of which I was a member, held my hand. I still keep in touch with three of the set - one lives in Australia, two in England and me in Crete. They were good days but hard work!

Not having much luck on this one so far! I am sure that somewhere in this lot will lay the answer but not easily accessible:
Will keep looking but in cases like this recent history is harder to track down than the older stuff.

I actually lived in the nirses home called Rutland House Bedford Place. I lived there in 1983 around the summer/ autumn time.
I was coming towards the end of my two year enrolled nurse training. Origianlly started at Tadworth, then upto Queen Elisabeths in Hackney Road and then GOS. I hated it at Rutland House. The room was huge but I was separated from the rest of my set who were in the main nurses home at GOS. Eventually I moved there when a room became available. This why I wasnted tk join  this forum as I came across the post about wanting to find out if anyone had ever lived there.
