Research on our recent history

About us

More in this section

A new research project into our history is underway that aims to tell the story of our hospitals and our various institutions from the 1970s to the 2000s. Historians from the University of Manchester are carrying out the research, thanks to generous funding from Guy's and St Thomas'.

Do you have memories to share?

A key aspect of the research includes collecting memories and recollections from staff (past and present), students, patients and volunteers from all areas and occupations.

If you're interested, then please write out your story (as short or as long as you like) and send it by post or email to one of the addresses on the right.

Questions to help you with your story

  • Have you kept in touch with your work colleagues?
