St George’s Hospital  1818 – 1995


Due to many factors,  including  unsociable shift-work  hours, it was not  always easy for Staff to maintain much of an external social life. With life revolving around the Hospital, it is probably true to say that in many ways, we became  more like a very large extended family and friends.
The Hospital did provide us over many years, with an annual staff dinner dance in the recreation hall, but not yet having our own premises,  we often organised our own social events and parties etc. usually in our homes, the recreation hall, other venues and later, in our own Social Club.
