Dr Ivor Williams - medical superintendent, Craig-y-nos
Dr Ivor Williams
Dr Carole Reeves of The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, University College London has just pointed out that Dr Williams was a physician at Kensington, St Brides, before going to Craig-y-nos in 1947.
He went there as a TB specialist but was also an orthopaedic (bone) surgeon at that stage because many of the patients there had TB bones.
He was also in the Home Guard in Pembrokeshire during the War.
