Times have changed!

Some hand written ledgers from the archive remind us how times have changed. The hospital accounts for 1917 show us that more was spent on milk than on drugs, disinfectant and dressings. In the same year, 80% of patients were discharged from the Sanatorium having shown signs of recovery from TB. A wonderful record of healthcare history to share.
