17 January 1969, British Hospital and Social Service Review
It may have been the swinging sixties, but sexual discrimination was alive and kicking in the small ads this week. The Hospitalsi Computer Centre for London was looking for two female data control clerks for its control section, while St Davidis Hospital in Cardiff was seeking a young man for its engineering services department.
There is also an ad requesting a senior medical records clerk (female) to supervise registration at University College Hospital, London.
The successful applicant would be energetic, enthusiastic and capable, and interested in dealing with patients and staff. No word on why a female was required.
And we were quite touched by an advert placed by the Hornsey Trust for Handicapped Children, which was looking for a rather special nurse.
