Hospitals of London

A look at the hospitals of London and their fascinating histories.

Jonathan Evans looks at the hospitals of London, as well as some further afield, and touches upon their fascinating histories. The talk covers a long historical period — from the early Middle Ages to the present day — and draws upon archival records and historical illustration collections. He looks at the evolution of hospitals, from Christian monastic and royal foundations through to the emergence of NHS Trusts.

Speaker Jonathan Evans has been Archivist and Curator at The Royal London Hospital Archives & Museum since 1989 and is Hon. Apothecaries Lecturer in the History of Medicine to Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. His publications include Treves and the Elephant Man and Edith Cavell.
