Last year Lothian Health Services Archive was involved in a HLF-funded project called ‘Unsung Heroes’, in which students and staff from Edinburgh College of Art produced new pieces based on their experience of Lothian Health Services Archive material relating to nursing (including their collection of historic nursing and hospital badges), along with oral histories collected from current and retired nurses. Some of the historic badges and the new pieces created have formed a permanent installation in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. More information about the project is available on their website.
