Celebratory NHS exhibition at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery needs your help

Celebratory NHS exhibition at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery needs your help!

Warrington Museum and Art Gallery are collecting the memories and objects of Warringtonians either working in the NHS currently or who have been employed in the NHS or may wish to share memories of its services for a new exhibition (opening Saturday 24 Mar 2018 – Saturday 7 Jul 2018) to celebrate 70 years of the service.

As well as your memories, they would love to see any photographs that you might have, perhaps from when you worked at a hospital in Warrington either pre NHS or post NHS. Or do you have any objects relating to the NHS, such as old uniform, ephemera, medical certificates or medical equipment that you would be happy to loan to the museum?

The exhibition, The Health Revolution, will feature material from the archives and collections which tell the story of Warrington’s changing healthcare services. The history of the main hospitals in the town such as Warrington Infirmary, Warrington General, and Winwick Hospital will be featured, and visitors will have an opportunity to reminisce about time spent either using the NHS services or working for the organisation.

You can contribute to this project either by calling into the museum for a chat or emailing Hannah White (Collections Assistant) at x-hwhite@culturewarrington.org. If you prefer social media use our Facebook page or Tweet us @warringtonmus.
