The John Wernham College

The Maidstone Osteopathic Clinic was established in 1949. These made provision for the treatment of those in need of osteopathy and to further the education and training of students and graduates in osteopathy. The main objective, however, was the foundation of a hospital to be called the Littlejohn Memorial Hospital, in honour of the Founder and Dean of the British School of Osteopathy.

Lastly, the clinic may generally do "All other acts as may be lawfully done by a body established for purposes recognised by the law as charitable." The students sponsored by the Clinic at the British School of Osteopathy in the 1950's all qualified; among them was Timothy Ringland, John Wernham's nephew.
