Cheetham Jewish Hospital
« on: 04:27:34, 21/03/17 »
Hi, Can any one tell me in 1975 did the Cheetham jewish Hospital take non Jewish people ?  Trying to learn the history of my family I know little about them. Marion and Clarence Aplin lived in Dovedale Ave in Prestwich, Clarence was a store manager. They were my Aunt and Uncle. Thanks for any help

Hi Juliaw, as long as i can remember the Jewish hospital was open to everyone. Early 1960's as a kid i was getting stitched up there. I was always getting to to some scrapes or falling of something or other.

I remember my mam being referred there in the sixties with some ailment  I just remember it as a very bright place inside , if I'm not mistaken north Manchester general has a Jewish wing but obviously it's  for everyone.

Thanks Parky was just a bit of a shock when I found out she died there. Glad it was a nice bright place so her last days would not have been in a depressing place

Can still smell the antiseptic in the waiting room,they knew our names on walking in.
Kids took themselves in for scrapes and stitches,good job it was next to the park.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason
