Hi Selina,

Welcome to RootsChat.  :)

No idea what time frame you might be looking at, but there is some history here:

http://www.nottinghamhospitalshistory.co.uk/page148.html

Wikipedia has information about its time as a military hospital.

The National Archives has an entry in its Hospital records Database.

There also seem to be a fair number of images when carrying out a Google image search.

Thank you for your help nell.
Ive found some pieces via google i think she was there around the 1960s possibly 1970s. She also worked at balderton hospital near newark.
She passed away in 1993 but id love to find a photo of her in her younger days. Thank you

I had a friend working there 1975 to at least 1977. It was a mental institution.
