Ely Hospital, Cardiff. 19th November 1980. *IN the late 1960s Ely Hospital, a long-stay hospital for people with learning difficulties, was an isolated world in which cigarettes were the only currency and patients slept 50 to a ward. This all changed after the 1969 Ely Inquiry n with ward sizes going down to 30 patients or less n but many of the characteristics of life in the institution remained the same. Karen Jeffreys of Cardiff People First said: iThey didnit get a choice. They got up when they were told to get up, they wore what they were told to wear, ate what they were told to eat and did activities that they were told to do. iFor many people, we are talking about 30 years of their lives n or more n without even being able to make a cup of tea for themselves, because the kettle was an industrial one and it was too dangerous. 19th November 1980
