Description: The recordings recall the many changes that occurred in the management of the hospital and care of patients. Interviews with former staff and current staff give an insight into the daily workings of the hospital. From these, a history of the institution from the 1940s to its closure has emerged. The recollections describe the poor conditions of the 1940s, conditions which had changed very little since the hospital opened, and the almost continuous changes and improvements in the following decades. Interviews were conducted with staff who lived in the hospital, who worked on the farm and with children of staff who grew up in Our Lady’s Hospital.
