Exhibition celebrates 65 years of neurosciences at Frenchay

Friday, 14 March 2014

A special exhibition will take place at Frenchay Hospital on Saturday, March 22 (10am-2pm) which looks at the many achievements of its world-renowned neurosciences department.

The event is being staged to celebrate 65 years of neurosciences at Frenchay ahead of the move of hospital services to the new Brunel building at Southmead Hospital Bristol in May.

Exhibits will include archive photos and specialist equipment from throughout the years. Free tea, coffee and biscuits will also be available.

Mr Crispin Wigfield, Clinical Director for Neurosciences, said: “Frenchay Hospital is synonymous with the world of neurosciences and since the hospital’s creation in the 1940s we have been at the forefront of treatments and conditions related to the brain.

“More recently, the team has led the way in treating conditions such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis and is taking part in some really ground-breaking research in these areas.

“I know that neurosciences at Southmead Hospital Bristol will continue and go from strength-to-strength.

“The exhibition on March 22 will be a celebration of what we’ve achieved throughout the years. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you.”

The exhibition is free and will be held at the Monica Britton Museum, Post Graduate Centre, Frenchay Hospital.
