    Default Broadgreen Hospital

    Anyone got any info on Broadgreen Hospital history. I know it was the Fairfield infirmary beforehand but would like some pictures and info on the hospital and staff from 1970 onwards. I worked there as a theatre technicianbetween 1973 and 1981 before moving to the new Royal Hospital.
    Anyone please help.

    1908 -



    Highfield Infirmary, Old Swan, an epileptic home, was opened in 1903 by the
    Liverpool Select Vestry. In 1922 Highfield Infirmary was transferred to the
    Liverpool Corporation and it became the Highfield Sanatorium for tuberculosis
    sufferers. In 1929 it changed its name to Broadgreen Sanatorium and later
    became Broadgreen Hospital. Liverpool Record Office holds the records of
    Broadgreen Hospital, 1931-1989 (ref: 614 BRO), but no earlier records for
    Highfield Infirmary survive.

    I was interested to see that Broadgreen Hospital was classed as being in Old Swan in 1903. Does anyone know where Broadgreen actually is. I've never been able to define its boundaries. A distant relation used to live in Broadgreen Hall. This was on Rocky Lane which people now class as Childwall.
