Hospital wants your old photos

DORSET County Hospital is seeking pictures from the past as it prepares to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the NHS.

The hospital is looking for pictures that illustrate its history and its staff over the years, especially photos that represent a specific era – such as those which feature distinctive uniforms or hairstyles.

A spokesperson said: “If you or your family have any images that you’re happy for us to use and reproduce, then please get in touch.”

Arts in Hospital is also working on a future project to create a history wall which will show a visual journey of the hospital over its 180-plus years, incorporating the history of medicine, healthcare and the social history of the county.

The spokesperson added: “We would love it if some of these photos could feed into this larger project.”
