Sick Wing -1970s
Leave a comment
I only spent 2 days and 1 night in 'sick bay' throughout my 6 years at DWS. Lovely crisp white cotton sheets. I was in LIV and queuing after breakfast outside 'surgery' (that small room at the side of the Art room )where Matron in starched uniform and cap came out-"NEXT" she called but she saw me shivering despite being 5th in the queue and immediately said "you are for sick bay go now".
My first experience of sick bay was in my first term at DWS when I developed chicken pox about a week after starting in LIV. I spent ten days in isolation in a small room at the end of a corridor. I had to miss my own birthday tea so it was a bit of a trying start to my five years. I do however remember being visited by Miss Lickes - with a saucer of sweets!
