ADDED 18 MARCH 2006
response to the letter submitted by Pete Roberts, 19th February 2006, he
mentioned Chequerfield Hospital and what it was used for.
a nine-year-old in 1946, I had my birthday in there. I was taken in in
June suffering from Scarlet Fever and had to stay there for a month.
was kept in isolation with no visitors allowed at all for the first two
weeks. After that we were allowed to go to the main gates to see and
talk to our parents who had to remain on the other side of the gates.
infections had their own units. Many were for skin complaints,
measles, scabies and other infections. All our belongings and clothes
were taken from our homes to be treated in an effort to suppress the
spread of infection.
these problems are not seen as too serious.
