Historical information

1922 was significant for the amount of building/renovation undertaken by the hospital after WWI. This photo is taken at the back of the newly completed nurse's home and the tent/marquee the nurses are standing next to gives an idea of the level of works being undertaken at the time.


The photo shows the student nurses with their Matron at the start of a new era with increased accommodation for student nurses in the Nurses’ Home they are standing near.
