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.
