Finance Committee minutes are not as boring as they sound!

Our expenditure records reveal a wealth of information about what our patients ate and drank, the activities that they took part in, the uniforms that staff wore, and how the building and facilities were cleaned and maintained. The records also tell us about the businesses that provided our services and provisions, and we will explore how many of them are still in existence over 160 years later!

Join us for this open lecture for some virtual nineteenth century window shopping!
