The University’s Faculty of Health and Social Care (FHSC) Historical Society was founded in 2008 to mark the 60th anniversary of the NHS and unites individuals with an interest in medicine, nursing, midwifery and social work across the University and the wider community.

The Society meets regularly for a range of talks and discussion and anyone with an interest in health and social care or social history is welcome to attend. The programme of speakers is available to view and you can see recordings of many of our previous talks our Past Events page. Pre-booking is encouraged for space and refreshment purposes and contact: fhsc.histsoc@chester.ac.uk or ring 01244 512126. 

The Society also has its own Riverside Museum with curiosities from medicine, nursing, social work and midwifery, together with the First World War: Returning Home exhibition (refurbished with the generous help of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Heritage) portraying what a soldier would have encountered on his return from the Front to Cheshire. The Museum is open on the first Wednesday afternoon in the month from 1-4pm (plus other community events) and is open to all.   Group bookings for six or more people can also be made at other times by prior arrangement by using the contact details above. 

See the dates when the Museum will be open and for further updates and additions to the programme.
