Throughout history, sickness and health has played a huge role in shaping personal,  national and international narratives.

2023 saw the 75th anniversary of the NHS – one of the most transformative developments in British social history. To mark this, we’re looking back on local sickness and health. In this display, we explore how health has interacted with the ancient world, religion, death, women, war and mental wellbeing, among many other themes. Each section paints a picture of the myriad ways sickness and health has always interwoven with daily life here in Elmbridge.

Sickness and Health can be viewed during the Civic Centre’s open hours, which are –

Monday to Thursday: 8.45 am to 5 pm

Friday: 8.45 am to 4.45pm

Saturday and Sunday: Closed
