Before the NHS: Discovering East London’s Medical Past

19 November, 2018, 6:15 pm - 7:00 pm

In recognition and celebration of the 70th anniversary of the NHS, come and discover the traces of East London’s medical history. A guide map designed by Queen Mary University of London reveals the hidden relics of the hospitals that existed prior to the inception of the NHS. The map links together the Queen Mary sites that exist today: St Bartholomew’s Hospital founded in 1123 which is the oldest hospital in England to have provided continuous care for patients on the same site, The Royal London Hospital founded in 1740 which was once the largest general hospital in the country and where Joseph Merrick the Elephant Man was treated and Queen Mary’s Mile End campus which is situated next to Mile End Hospital. Encounter East London’s medical past with these sites plus many others.

Join in the launch event at the Royal London Hospital Museum or collect the free map from any of the Queen Mary sites.

Richard Meunier, Alban Low, Harvey Wells
