Sorry, Wizard, I have no idea. But what I do remember is my dad reading the CET every evening, and almost every week he'd say "here we go again: Mary Hill, 51, fined £5 for being drunk and disorderly"!

Hi, welcome to the forum. I'd love to help but it's not my area of interest - hopefully someone will be along who have the info. Wave

The C&W theatres were never moved. They were where you remember them, through the double doors facing first flooor lift and to the right. I worked there in July to September 1976 while training. We would greet the patient on a stretcher, checking their armband and notes and verbally confirming their name and DOB with them. Then they were taken into the theatre anaesthetic room to be put to sleep. From there they were taken into one of two theatres. After the op they were recovered and taken back to their ward. In 1976 the room that would be ICU was empty. In ICU where I worked on the bank, there were 6 beds and it was normally staffed by 4 trained nurses. There WERE tunnels under the hospital but were never used to transport patients, as old patient records were kept down there and they never ran to any departments at all.

Another correction on my part. ICU did only have 4 beds not 6 as I said earlier. But nurses wore normal uniform there, not theatre scrubs.

We were probably there at the same point. I did my orthopaedic training Jan 1976 to March 1978, then returned to Keresley Ward Dec 1979 as a trained nurse. I was on Elizabeth Ward from June 1984 for some time and Smith Clarke from December 1984. I also did the other wards as a bank nurse till 1993. I met my husband who was a porter there. I am now retired and living in Cornwall since October 2020. I retired early. I did work at Coventry Myton Hospice from 2017 till I retired. What job did you do at C&W?
