Hospitals

There is some interesting material on Gosport War Memorial Hospital, Lord Mayor Treloar Hospital, Alton, Southampton Hospitals and clinics before the Second World War, and Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley. The latter includes oral history tapes, videos and reunions, but does not show the hospital in full operation.

Other material of interest includes a 1960s nurse recruitment film for Park Prewett mental hospital, Basingstoke, a British Pathe film showing Farnborough Hill House in use as a hospital for troops in the First World War, Ashurst Geriatric Hospital in 1976 and Odiham Cottage Hospital in 1999.
