Highwood Hospital

A Memory of Brentwood

Highwood Hospital, Brentwood TB hospital for children and teenagers. I was there aged 14 just, in 1953 to 1954, 13 months in all. Apart from the treatment we had a good time. Rowans 3 and 4 was my ward. The hospital staff were wonderful. Many friends, names forgotten apart from a few Carole Davis, Pauline Brice, Brian Andrews, Harry Coldrake, Tony Welland as well as a fantastic Nurse Lawless and Dr Bentley. I see from another memory someone was on Rowans 1 and 2. Who are you? My Email address is paulfiller@hotmail.com telephone no. 01707659785 Please get in touch....Paul Filler....
