The Story of our lives
A national programme of work supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) which aims to preserve NHS heritage and mark its 70th anniversary in 2018 by capturing memories and memorabilia from a diverse range of communities.
Explore the rich diversity of NHS history through people’s voices. These are a taster of the oral histories recorded by our volunteers in South Wales and Greater Manchester.
Explore how the NHS has changed since its creation in 1948. Stories from patients, staff, volunteers and campaigners and items from our collections bring to life the development of the NHS throughout its first 70 years.
Our fantastic team of volunteers have already collected over 140 stories and you can find out more about their work here.
