Our Welfare, Our Health – The Doctor’s Bag

Heritage Fund Logo

Funded by the National lottery heritage fund. A collection of oral histories of life under the protection of the NHS.

Our Welfare, Our Health – co-created with residents in care, reminiscence resources.

Creative Paths CIC worked with ten care homes and delivered reminiscence sessions to their residents to gather memories and recollections of their experience of the NHS.

We assembled a doctor’s bag containing the contents of a 1950s medical bag and used objects of social interest on the themes of public health and welfare. These were used to stimulate the recall of personal histories during the sessions, and the stories, comments, and anecdotes shared were audio recorded.

We created a resource where you can listen to the stories.

We hope listening to these will bring insight and understanding of the important moments in the social history relating to the positive impact and change the NHS has given.

This project is to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the National Health Service (NHS).
