Salisbury Healthcare History is a growing digital archive of Salisbury District Hospital’s historical collection. The Heritage Lottery Funded project has enabled us to properly catalogue and store our records and share a selection online. With items dating back to the building of Salisbury General Infirmary in 1766 and beyond, this online resource provides an exciting insight into Salisbury’s health care.

70 years of the NHS

To mark the 70th anniversary of the birth of the NHS we have selected an image from our archive for each of the past 70 years. Visit our NHS70 page to see some of the many changes to NHS healthcare here in Salisbury since 1948, including wards, royal visits, nursing and fundraising.

Watch the That’s TV clip on YouTube featuring our NHS70 celebrations that took place on 5th July 2018 at Salisbury District Hospital.
