Stephanie will talk about the national programme of work she's leading to create the first Digital Archive of NHS history through working with volunteers to collect memories and memorabilia from patients, staff and the public. She will share some of the stories gathered to date and reflect on the importance of creating a shared history through capturing individual voices. The work is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and partners including Age UK, the Stroke Association, mental health charities, the NHS, the NHS Confederation and the TUC.

 

Dr Stephanie J Snow

Stephanie is a historian of medicine and healthcare based at the University of Manchester. She is Director of NHS at 70: The Story of Our Lives, a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and partners including Age UK, the Stroke Association, mental health charities, the NHS, the NHS Confederation and the TUC. NHS at 70 is collecting memories and memorabilia from patients, staff and the public which will create the first Digital Archive of NHS history. Stephanie also holds a Wellcome Trust University Award for a project on the history of quality in healthcare since the 1960s. She is Academic Lead for Engagement and Involvement for the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.

Her publications cover many subjects in the history of medicine including the introduction of anaesthesia to Victorian medicine and the history of the NHS. She is passionate about history’s public value and its power to transform our understandings of the present through exploring the past. Much of her work uses oral history to gather memories and reflections and through this she has the privilege of building engagement with organisations, communities and people across health and medicine. She is a regular contributor to radio and TV documentaries on health and medicine including the BBC’s The One Show and Radio 4’s In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg. Most recently she appeared on Radio 2’s The Jeremy Vine Show on 5 July 2018, the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
