History of our hospital.

Patients and staff are being invited to open the pages on the history of Sedgefield Community Hospital.

Local author Bob Abley, a former employee at the hospital, has compiled a book on its background.

Featuring memories and stories, the book will be launched at an open day at the hospital, from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday.

Bob will be signing copies of the book, which will be on sale for pounds 9.99.

Kath Vasey, head of nursing and community services for Sedgefield Primary Care Trust, came up with the idea for the publication.

She said: "I was keen to learn more about the origins of the old hospital and realised how important it was to capture in some way the social history of it before it disappeared.

"I hope people will enjoy reading the book and reminiscing about their experiences at Sedgefield Hospital."
