Helping Health – 75 years of the NHS

Sat 1st Jul 2023 to Sat 14th Oct 2023 - All Day

Explore the many changes in our healthcare from herbs and blood-letting to keyhole surgery and MRI scans as we celebrate 75 years of the NHS!

Mainly focusing on hospitals and their medical staff in Maidstone, we explore what healthcare was like before the NHS was introduced. Find out about the hospitals that have now gone, uniforms through the ages and some of the equipment used.

FREE admission
