Have your say

A new plaque has been installed on the site of the former Jessop Hospital for Women on Leavygreave Road, Broomhall, to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of the original Sheffield Hospital for Women in the city centre.

The former Jessop Hospital is now occupied by the University of Sheffield’s department of music.

John Parsons, a former Senior Lecturer in Medical Physics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, said: “I felt it was such an important part of the city’s heritage that it was vital that this was permanently recognised.”
