    Arrow The Royal hospital, Wolverhampton- history

    Following on from my recent posts here- (The Royal hospital, Wolverhampton)

    here- (The Royal hospital, Wolverhampton)

    and the development plans detailed here- (Supermarket giants in deal on Wolverhampton land)

    here's some history...
    Quote Quote
    In 1845 Mr. George Briscoe, a local businessman, fell from a chair at his home when cleaning a painting. Whilst lying in bed with a broken leg he pondered the plight of those less fortunate than he, who could not afford medical treatment. Along with his friend Henry Rogers he resolved to do something to help. Each donated 500 to the fund for the building of a new hospital.
