Request for Your NHS Memories

MEMORIES of the NHS, as it celebrates its 60th birthday, are being sought by health managers at the Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust.

Stories and reminiscences from staff and retired hospital workers are being collected by the trust to mark the anniversary this July.

A spokesman said: "If you have worked for the trust, or in hospitals in the Vale of Glamorgan or Cardiff, or if you have a story of your time as a patient in this area, we would like to hear from you. If you were there when the Queen opened the University Hospital of Wales in the early 1970s, if you have a story about Llandough Hospital in the Sixties, or if you can remember when the Cardiff Royal Infirmary was bombed during the war, we want to hear from you by the end of this month.

"We are also interested in any memorabilia or photographs of days gone by, and people's stories from the past will bring the celebrations to life."

Call 029 2074 6381 or write to Marie Concannon, PR Office, Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust, Cardigan House, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, CF14 4XW.
