The Hypertension Clinic was initially staffed by Sister Doris Gayne and a number of clerk/technicians.
Paula Rhodes recalls that in the 1960s, there were more clerk/technicians in the Hypertension Clinic than there were in Cardiology. Marilyn Hay recalls that in her time there (1967-1972) the team comprised Sister Gayne, a staff nurse and three or four clerk/technicians.
As with Cardiology, the term clerk/technician was replaced by just technician in the early 1970s.
Some of the staff nurses who worked there were Margaret Easthope, Fay Fitzgerald, Kathleen Kuzmicich and Margaret Malcolm.
Greta Dunbar and Constance Sutherland were two typists who were assigned to Hypertension. There were several other typists that I cannot name.
Carmen Chassagne worked in the clinic as a clerk (1977 - 1982) followed by Jessie Campbell (1982 - 1985)
Technicians employed in the Hypertension Clinic appear below. It is likely that there were additional clerk/technicians not yet identified by me.

Several surnames and a single first name are unknown. Ron would welcome any knowledge of these missing names, and of missing dates of tenure.
