Dr Huppert and young women - 1947

The white coated figure of Dr Huppert will be a familiar figure to patients who were in Craig-y-nos during the 1940’s and 1950s.

She is seen here with a group of young women from the Annexe.

We have still to find out why Dr Huppert carried out regular blood tests on these young women. So far no medical reason has been found for this procedure.
