This book by local historian Helen Allinson tells the story of the isolation hospital at Keycol Hill and the TB sanatorium where patients were treated in the fresh air. There is the grim tale of the Milton Union Workhouse Infirmary which was still dreaded by the local poor.
We hear of the two First World War hospitals in the town and those who treated the soldiers. Then we have the Memorial Hospital which the townsfolk were so proud of. It was a different world before the NHS and this is related with startling clarity.
