Voices From Our Archive
Discover voices from our archive through these curated excerpts from our collection of oral histories. This page started as our 'Moments of Care' exhibition curated in 2019 and we are now expanding it to cover a range of voices from our collection.
Since 2017 we have been recording oral histories with people across the UK to create the first national archive of NHS history. In 2020 we secured funding from the AHRC through the UKRI Covid-19 Urgency call to create a national collection of personal testimony - this will add an additional 900 interviews to our existing collection.
This funding also secured a permanent home for the whole collection at the British Library. We are currently working in partnership with the British Library to transfer the full interviews. In the interim we have taken the decision to remove access to our archive and whole oral history interviews on this site whilst they are being made accessible at the British Library. Please contact us to enquire about access to whole recordings and where possible we will facilitate this for you.
