Visit two free exhibitions telling the story of healthcare in Leicester, drawing extensively on archive collections: THE ART OF HEALTHCARE Exploring the connection between museums, learning and wellbeing. Featuring objects from the extensive collection of art, artefacts and archives belonging to University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. This exhibition has been run in partnership with the trust and features on its new Arts & Heritage Trail, which celebrates its longstanding connection with art and wellbeing. A HERITAGE OF HEALING The History of the Leicester School of Nursing & Midwifery Nursing is often described as an art and a science - an unrivalled fusion of knowledge, passion, patience, trust and caring. Whilst the heart of the occupation has always revolved around healing, the role of a nurse has changed dramatically over the centuries, alongside the society for which it cares. This exhibition celebrates the origins of nurse training in Leicester - a history shared between the Leicester Royal Infirmary and De Montfort University (DMU), which goes back nearly 150 years. Featuring materials from DMU’s Archives & Special Collections.
