Be part of new hospital book

MY next book, Brighton Born, Sussex Bred will be published in the autumn in conjunction with the Friends of Brighton and Hove Hospitals.

This tells the story of Brighton Maternity Hospitals from Victorian times, including the Sussex Maternity Hospital (also known as the Buckingham Road hospital) that closed in 1970.

Many Sussex mothers (like my own) will have given birth there and we would like to include their memories of the hospital in the book.

We would be pleased if any readers who would like to help would write to Friends of Brighton and Hove Hospitals, 37 St Georges Road, Brighton, BN2 1ED or email me at
