    Default Combination Fever Hospital, Harris Park 1908

    John William Sutherland, born 21 Feb 1885 Canisbay, died 2 Oct 1908, Parish of Wick, at the "Combination Fever Hospital, Harris Park, usual residence 47 Dempster Street, Pultneytown". I can't find any information regarding the Combination Fever Hospital" in Wick. The closest reference is to a combination almshouse/workhouse in Thurso.
    Anyone have any information on the history / location of this hospital?
    Thanks,

    Hi, As far as i know, the combination fever hospital was in Harrow park(not Harris park) at the top of the Wick cemetery and is now two houses. Not sure when the town and county hospital (now the timbury unit) in hospital road started taking the fever cases, i know they were there in the 1950s, perhaps the heritage centre might help some more.
