New railway station for Maghull, let's call it Maghull Moss Side.

We as members and former members of staff from Ashworth Hospital and the former Moss Side Hospital, would like to have the proposed new Maghull railway station named 'Maghull Moss Side' after the former Moss Side Hospital on who's grounds the new station will be built. The former Moss Side Hospital has had a major influence on worldwide medicine and psychiatry, it was hailed as the first school of 'Clinical Psychopathology' in Britain and one of the first institutions in the world to recognise 'Shell Shock' (known today as 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder' or PTSD) as a medical condition. Also as a one time major employer and housing provider in and around the town of Maghull, Moss Side Hospital has had a major influence in the shaping of Maghull from a one time small village into a modern town and a desirable place to live. Therfore, we feel the least that can be done to honour this groundbreaking institution is to have the new railway station named after it.
