The Evelyn Hospital (now the Nuffield) affected many lives in Cambridge, some of whom undoubtedly owing their lives to the high standards and top-level skills that were applied to acute medical and surgical cases. An independent hospital, it was as much a part of the fabric of Cambridge life as the University with which it had many associations.
Undoubtedly, once you were in the Evelyn, you felt a lot better just sampling the attentive and skilled care of the nurses and the atmosphere that made it less of a hospital and more of a refuge.
A Wonderful Thing for Cambridge: The Evelyn Hospital - 1921 to 2003 was written by Sheila Mann - not only a nurse experienced in many aspects of medicine but with an MA in the History and Theory of Architecture - after she discovered a complete and untapped archive existed in the Hospital's attics.
