Matthew Phong, a brave young boy suffering from paralytic polio, celebrating his first birthday with the nurses of Middleton Hospital in 1978. He had been in the “iron lung” since the age of 5 months, and was to spend his next 5 years on the respirator. Middleton Hospital, which became the Communicable Disease Centre in 1985, provided post-polio rehabilitation in addition to serving as an acute hospital for the containment and treatment of different infectious diseases of the day.
