Seniors Smiling Sometimes Seriously - John Turner

We are incredibly pleased to share with you the publication of Seniors Smiling Sometimes Seriously, written by OW John Turner (1956-1960).

This book draws on forty years of observations as an NHS consultant and the wide variety of personalities he has encountered. John intended to raise smiles, whilst being mindful of the seriousness of his experiences - an integral part of the many manifestations of medical humour.

To our delight, Worksop College has been mentioned within the acknowledgements:

"After the first term at Worksop College, and thanks to Westbourne, my parents – both of whom left school at fourteen – were delighted to be informed that I had been awarded an Alex Simpson-Smith academic scholarship, a vital help to heavily stretched family finances. At Worksop we were taught biology (and of course rugby) by Jeff Butterfield, captain of the England rugby team and a British Lion."
