FAREWELL to SEVERALLS November, 2013

EVER SINCE THE BEGINNINGS OF OUR ATTEMPT TO DOCUMENT THE HISTORY OF SEVERALLS HOSPITAL, THERE HAD BEEN A LONG-STANDING JOKE THAT GUIDED TOURS SHOULD BE ARRANGED FOR THOSE INTERESTED. FAST-FORWARD SEVERAL YEARS, AND A CONVERSATION ABOUT THIS "IDEA" WAS MET WITH THE RESPONSE THAT THIS MIGHT ACTUALLY HAPPEN. THEN WE RECEIVED A CALL, AND AMAZINGLY, DESPITE THE FEAR THAT RED TAPE / HEALTH & SAFETY MIGHT HAVE SCUPPERED ANY PLANS FOR AN OFFICIAL TOUR, WE WERE TOLD THAT THE TOUR WAS GOING AHEAD! THE DAY OF THE TOUR ARRIVED AND WELL, HOW CAN THE DAY BE SUMMED-UP? AMAZING STORIES, VIVID RECOLLECTIONS: SOME HAPPY, SOME SAD, EMOTIONAL RE-UNIONS. A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO FORMER SEVERALLS STAFF, WHO KINDLY TOOK US AROUND THE HOSPITAL, AND TO THOSE AT NORTH ESSEX PARTNERSHIP UNIVERSITY NHS FOUNDATION TRUST (N.E.P.F.T.) FOR WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES TO MAKE THIS DAY POSSIBLE.
