Medical Service

Medical Service

Initially most staff in retail establishments lived in hostels which offered the services of a matron. In addition, some branches, including Bainbridges, operated a benevolent society into which staff paid a weekly amount to cover medical costs.

In the Partnership, the additional support of a Medical Service was introduced in 1930 and a nurse was available in each branch with access to a doctor and assistance with convalescence.

Over the years the service grew and became the Occupational Health team, offering preventative as well as on site treatment.
