The PEH is turning 70!


The Princess Elizabeth Hospital is marking its 70th anniversary with an exhibition and is calling for previous patients and staff to come forward with old photos and stories.

The audio and visual exhibition will launch on 23 June - exactly 70 years after the then Princess Elizabeth opened the hospital in 1949.

There will be a special afternoon tea party on 25 May to encourage Bailiwick residents to share their stories between 12:00 and 16:00 in the Emma Ferbrache room.

"Gathering photos by email and stories at the tea party is all part of celebrating the fascinating 70 year history of the PEH," said Culture, Arts and Health Manager for HSC, Lottie Barnes. "We want to collate stories and memories in pictures and audio from the people who have either worked or been a patient here.

"Working with the Priaulx Library, Guernsey Museum, Government House and Island Archives, this will be a first in documenting just how integral to the community spirit the hospital has continues to be."

President of Health and Social Care, Deputy Heidi Soulsby added: "The PEH continues to be a critical part of the fabric of our community, growing and adapting to population, clinical and technological changes. I very much look forward to seeing this exhibition bring history to life."

More information on how to share pictures and memories is available here.
