Trafford General Hospital as it's known today.

However if you're from my generation then you'll probably still think of it as DAVYHULME PARK HOSPITAL.

It's worth reminding ourselves too that Davyhulme Park Hospital was the FIRST hospital in the WORLD to offer free health care to ALL.
 
Course we take it very much for granted today but the fact of the matter is, just over 60 years ago saw the first stuttering steps of the NHS emerging.
 
That's right, on July 5th 1948 our humble town of URMSTON, MANCHESTER became home to the first NHS hospital to open its doors to the masses.

It's hard to envisage just what a massive undertaking this whole NHS plan really was.

A national health service including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, opticians, and dentists that is available to everyone, irrespective of social standing or whether you are rich or poor.

The whole deal is financed by taxation with contributions made by every single tax payer in the land.

The National Health service of Britain became the envy of the civilized world.
 
Trafford General Hospital has a very interesting history.
 
It opened its doors to its first patients on 17th December 1928.
 
During the war years many service personnel were treated here.
 
Glen Miller and his band entertained troops on these very lawns.
 
The Brown Bomber, Joe Louis also paid the hospital a visit during this time.
