For the first time and coinciding with the 70th Anniversary year of the NHS, Isle of Wight NHS Trust is hosting a Heritage Open Day on Saturday 15th September between 10am and 4pm in the Conference Room, opposite the Full Circle Restaurant on Level B at St Mary’s Hospital.

This will be a small event this year, but we hope it will be the first of many years participation in Heritage Open Days so that we can share the rich history of the Island’s health and care services.

Displays and old photos
In the Conference Room there will be displays of records and items of interest from the health service over the years. Photographs will be on display.

The Isle of Wight Council’s County Record Service will be in attendance with a selection of items from the County archives.
