Residents are invited to take part in Whipps Cross Voices, a community history project about Whipps Cross Hospital.

“We want to capture stories about the hospital from staff and patients, past and present, and preserve them as a historical resource for the future… You may be interested in recording your own memories, working in the archives with our existing collections, or helping us to curate the stories for displays online and at Whipps Cross,” said a spokesperson for Barts Health Archives.

A virtual launch event takes place today (30 March 2022) from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
