Tarporley War Memorial Hospital

Tarporley War Memorial Hospital is due to hold a Heritage Open Day on 21st September 2013 that will look back on and celebrate its remarkable history.

Visitors will be able to see a 1920's style operating theatre and to see how this compares to their own experience, either from a recent visit to hospital, or perhaps, more likely, from watching "Casualty."! Other exhibitions will include a 1960's hospital ward and a look at the changing styles of nursing during the lifetime of the Tarporley War Memorial Hospital.

Admission and Refreshments will be free but there will be an opportunity to make a voluntary donation towards the running of the hospital. The hospital was built in 1919 by public subscription as a memorial to the dead of World War One and relied on public support until it became part of the National Health Service in 1948. Faced with closure from the mid seventies onwards, in 1987 it became a Charitable Trust and once again reliant on local public support. Today, 70% of its running costs come from voluntary donations.

Karen Urmston is the hospital's Fundraising Co-ordinator and said "We need to raise £53,000 per month towards running costs and volunteers will shortly be delivering a leaflet to each household in Tarporley and surrounding local villages to enable people to give their support for the role the Hospital plays in the health and well being of the people in the community".

The Heritage Day exhibition is open from 2pm to 5pm.
