From the cradle to the grave’, the NHS is part of our lives. Yet no single museum tells the story of this incredible institution. Join historians from the University of Warwick, and curators from St Fagans National Museum of History in Oakdale, the Workmen's Institute, to create a virtual museum of the NHS.

We need YOUR HELP to do this!

Bring your NHS-related stories, memories and objects to our NHS Roadshow.  Bring baby tags, NHS glasses, false teeth, prescription pads and pill bottles. Did you make something during a hospital stay? Have you campaigned to save our NHS? Bring your placards, badges, flyers and leaflets and tell us what the NHS means to you.

Record your NHS story, photograph your NHS objects and create a virtual museum all about the NHS.  

Objects from the Museum's collections will be on display to reveal the history of health in Wales before the NHS. There will also be craft activities for the kids.
