My Uncle was in Wrightington in 1964, and I can recall going to see him, and the patients were outside in the fresh air, in their beds, under a veranda.

I remember going there when I was in the cubs to give them some money that we had collected from some charity event.

It was the first time I saw a black lad and couldnt believe that the palms of his hand where white, I thought the colour had come off from grabbing hold of things, but he said no the hands have always been that white on the insides

Thanks to four operations here, I am one of the thousands of worldwide " Bionic" men and women who have benefitted from the developments of modern medicine made here in Wigan
