No Going Back

No Going Back documents the experiences of people who lived and worked at Prudhoe Hospital in Northumberland – one of the many institutions where people with learning difficulties were incarcerated during the twentieth century. At the heart of this book are vivid testimonies from those who look back and say – there must be no going back.
