I know of someone looking for answers.

Anyone know what happened to records?

HI if anyone is still interested in this and still reading, I worked for Dr Godfrey Lightning in 1984-1985, I might be able to fill in some gaps.

I too had a termination in May 1981 at 21 weeks, they told me it was a boy. The whole procedure was horrendous and no aftercare or counselling from here. They did not tell me I would likely leak milk which I did and had to go to my own GP as they did not want to know when I phoned them, just said to go to my own Dr. I had problem smears for many years afterwards resulting in a colcoscopy and loop diathermy. Sadly never had any children and often wonder if it was due to the termination.
Would there be any records from that time and if so do you know where they may be held? many thanks
Herdy, if it was owned by the Lightning family then, I saw a lot of the records of the various hospitals. I know they were destroyed in a fire, whether deliberate to destroy evidence or not, I don't know. I DO know that a lot of didgy stuff went on there. I was the poor kid that had to answer the phones to the many poor souls that were trying to get answers and I was told "Put them on hold until they go away".

Hi! I appreciate the original post is now years old, but I have only just found it. I worked there, for a while in the 1980s, when it was a private abortion clinic. In fact, I actually had a termination there myself!

Wasn't surprised to discover it had been closed down due to medical negligence, since I was aware of several surgical mistakes during my employment as a clerical assistant.

I found this forum whilst googling, out of curiosity, one of the staff members. Apparently the managing director - Dr (non-medical) Godfrey Lightning (referred to as God by the staff, because of his notable megalomania) was convicted on child pornography charges in 2012.

Happy to try and answer any more questions.
Hi, please get in touch if you see this. I worked for "Lightning" too (At head office we didn't use his first name). I was terrified of him.

I did find out about the fire later.

The lady I have been trying to help was adopted from there around 1960/61 which is probably before your time

Hi Shaderon and welcome to the SL Forum.

In managing expectation I should point out that gillsiwillsi has not logged in to the site since that post of 20th February 20. It is possible she does still monitor the site without logging in as you will have discovered the site is readable without that. It is also possible that she subscribed to the thread which would have triggered an email alert that there are new posts. Of course that is dependent on her still using the email account as would the alert to the PM I will send notifyting her of your interest in making contact.

Because the site is not member restricted we don't advise including email addresses so you might want to remove it before it is picked up by a spambot. Your choice of course.

Regards
