Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine

I have just received the brochure from Dr Carole Reeves, Outreach Historian for The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine.

There is a big article on "The Children of Craig-y-nos" in the centre spread along with photographs. Copies of this international medical history brochure will be available both at the Patients Reunion and the photographic exhibition.

It still seems strange that our childhood experiences, of which we never talked for so many years, should suddenly become of major interest- warranting an article in an international medical history journal!

Only yesterday I read one transcript from a former patient who had gone back to Craig-y-nos some 15 years ago to try and find out something about her past only to be told that " we don't talk about that."
