THE FIRST COTTAGE HOSPITAL – UNVEILED MARCH 2009

The ceremony at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough coincided with the 150th anniversary of the opening of the country’s first cottage hospital on March 7, 1859. A special service was held in the hospital chapel to mark the occasion, and the Archdeacon of Cleveland dedicated the mural. It was all quite a grand affair made even more special by the lunch afterwards, where everyone helped themselves to large portions of scones with clotted cream and jam. Yum Yum!
