I was a post registration RMN student at Oldham School of Nursing  in 1965/1967.One of my tutors was Anna Bitzo! (Biczo). I would like to contact any other nurses who trained with me. Christine Holden - Beryl Ashworth (Stirland) and any other nurses who remember me.


I am now aged 78 and I am fortunate to have good health. I would love to see any of my old colleagues again. Are there any reunions events where I could attend ? I live in London and remember those times when we gave First Class Care 24/7. I would love to hear from any of my old associates. Best wishes Mr Bernie Brencher.

Hi, I trained in 1978 for RGN training, not at your hospital, but in Cornwall. I am moving over to be in Canada soon to live with my son and want to continue nursing over there, but I have to provide either transcripts or syllabus of my training. The Nursing School I attended has since closed and I cannot find out what has happened to the documents held by the school. Do you by any chance hold copies of syllabus for 1978 training for RGN's or do you know where I could get a copy. I do know that we were one of the first groups of student nurses to be undertaking the project 2000 nursing training. Hope you might be able to help me in this.

The closure of Oldham Royal Infirmary (ORI) was a sadness for many people who had worked at the hospital for many years. There was a big family involvement for Declan as two of his sisters had worked there. Declan appoached Councillor John Battye and suggested to him that the ORI doorway which is the entrance to the new college deserved a blue plague because of the hospitals service to the town and surrounding district for 125 years.

I'm a collector of nursing badges & have 3 variants of the Oldham badge, the oval shaped badge with the scroll.  One  has blue enamel, like the one in the gallery with the 2 medal type badges, one with white enamel & one with red enamel.  I can supply pictures.  What branch of nursing do the different coloured enamel represent?

I would also like to obtain the 2 medal type badges, one has blue enamel to its circlet & one has green enamel to its circlet.  Can anyone assist?

Commenced my RMN training 1986 to 89 with George, Joe, Heath, Joanne, Debbie, Sandra, Cheryl, Sarah, Jane, our tutors were Mike Levins, John Howarth and later Richard Ofori. They were really good times and, I guess, the end of an era. Soon after I qualified the school closed.

===========================

Here goes, I am a 43 year old man who is trying to find records of his father. My Dad worked at Boundary Park Hospital in the 70s, would be hard to forget him as his name was Uno Von Lyden, He may have spelt the Lyden slightly differently as there are variations. I know he died in the mid 70's and I know he had a wife called Jean but bar that I dont know much. My mother is Bettee Diane Simpson who was an RMN there and she also had a friend who was a good friend of my dads and she was called Mary Cavey, unsure of the spelling of Cavey.I am not after much just maybe my email passing to someone who knew him or knows any of my living relatives in the greater Manchester area. My Dad was from Finland so there will not have been many Finns on the payroll back then.  Many Thanks.

How lovely to see old photos, would love to access more if anyone has any.  I have a couple from 1981 but not sure how to upload.  I started training as an RGN in 1980, great time and wonderful nurse.  Still working now, times have change eh?

Here's to the good old times.

Amended email from Maria.

Sorry uploaded earlier post and meant to say wonderful nurses then, not that I was a wonderful nurse ha ha.

Message from from Nicola Fisher nee Riley.                                

Trained at oldham 1989-1992 with Mr Jepson, am doing a return to nursing course at the moment not sure if I'm doing the right thing as it all seems so different , was so much fun 20 years ago training and then working in A& E. It was so much better when nursing schools were smaller friendlier places.

 I trained with Nicola Fisher and I agree we had an amazing time with the wonderful Mr Jepson, we tried our hand at all aspects of nursing before we qualified and I had a wonderful (although hard work and tiring) 19yrs on trauma orthopaedics before I left to be with my kids. such a shame the training changed.

Hi, Can you tell me how I can access the lists of nurses at Oldham Hospital in the mid 1900's. (From Australia that is)I am told one of my families Aunts was "a big cheese" - namely 'Head Ward Maid' - at Oldham Royal working with Dr Steptoe. It appears it could be Edith Stephenson. However I have 2! One born approx 1896 and I dont know her married name, the other 1917 - 1988.

I hope you can help.

If you can`t get along we would still like to hear from you,  so if you wish to take part please send your memories to the Oldham Local Studies  and Archives, 84 Union Street, Oldham.
