Where: Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Little France, Edinburgh, EH16 4SA.
When: Thursday 10 February 2011, 11.30 – 3.00pm
Come along to the Unsung Heroes project 'Bring a Badge Day'!
See the beautiful collection of historic enamelled nursing and hospital badges from the Royal College of Nursing Archive and the Lothian Health Services Archive. Bring along your own badge or a badge that is in your family to learn how it was made from our badge expert Elizabeth Turrell.
If you are a nurse, health visitor, midwife, working or retired come along and share your memories for our archive. We’d love to record them. You don’t have to work at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh to come along. You can be a badge enthusiast, retired or working in healthcare, or just an interested member of the public.
Watch the silent film made in 1938 about life at the Royal Infirmary.
If you are a Pelican nurse, find your name in the register which will be on display.
