People will be able to look back through 70 years of Hull history next week when an NHS organisation hosts its annual general meeting.

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will hold its AGM in the lecture theatre at the Medical Education Centre at Hull Royal Infirmary on Tuesday.

A timeline celebrating 70 years of the NHS in the city will be on display at the event alongside three nurses’ uniforms from the 1970s, antique medical equipment, photographs and original plans and documents relating to the establishment of health services over the past 100 years.

Trust archivist Mike Pearson said: “People will be able to travel through the decades to see how health services have evolved before, during and after the creation of the NHS.

“We took the display to the Health Expo where we got a phenomenal response from the public and we’re offering people the chance to see if again if they missed it first time round.”

Members of the public will be able to view the display in the Medical Society Room, next to the lecture theatre, when they come to the AGM, held between noon and 1pm.

Staff working for the trust will also be able to visit the display from 10am to 4pm on the day of the AGM.

Trust Chief Executive, Chris Long, will give a presentation on the Trust’s performance, key issues and events during 2017/2018, after which Lee Bond, Chief Finance Officer, will review the Trust’s financial performance during the year.

The annual report will be available at from 24th July.
