Event description

Description

Visitors will be shown around the collection of archive material by members of Sheffield Hospitals History Group, all of whom are retired NHS staff. The collection was initiated by the late Dr Harold Swan in the 1970’s. Items in the collection primarily relate to the voluntary hospitals such as the Royal Infirmary and Royal Hospitals and also to the Workhouse at Fir Vale (now the Northern General Hospital). Portraits and busts of the founders of the hospitals will be on display in addition to old photographs of patients, buildings, wards and staff. Old instruments and equipment from the hospitals will be displayed. The collection includes plaques representing benefactors of the voluntary hospitals.
