Hilary Brown, a retired NHS Domestic Services manager, remembers her brother, Philip’s, treatment and care at the Christie in the 1950s. Philip, who had a brain tumour was on the men’s ward as there was no children’s ward at that time. To her brother’s delight, the ward sister asked Matt Busby [a Manchester United team footballer] to visit. Matt Busby attended the ward with several other Manchester United players. Philip sadly died, aged 11, but Hilary recalls fondly how her experience of his care as a child was what brought her to work in the NHS.
