Notes / History Before increased Government funding of the Health Service, many hospitals had to rely on public donations and fundraising initiatives, such as fetes and raffles. Here nurses from Nelson Hospital perform at a staff concert titled “Not in the Nurses Handbook!”, staged at Morden in 1953. The entry fees to this event may well have formed a welcome addition to hospital funds.
