Physician Superintendent – Dr. Joseph P. Spillane

January 9th, 2010 by Admin Leave a reply »



Dr. Joseph Spillane took up the post of Physician Superintendent the same year as the Mental Health (1959) was introduced.

This was also the beginning of a new decade.  The sixties were revolutionary in so many ways in music, politics, science and technology.

For the mental health services in Cardiff, it meant the diversification and development of a range of new specialised services.
