Bicentenary of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital

Royal Edinburgh Hospital Bicentenary - Events throughout the year

The Royal Edinburgh Hospital is celebrating its bicentenary in June 2013.

To commemorate 200 years of pioneering mental health care provision in NHS Lothian, we have created this website to showcase events happening throughout the year to mark this historic occasion.

You can read about the history of the hospital, find out about upcoming events, read details on the bicentenary lecture series as well as finding out the latest news.

Perhaps you have stories, photos or objects from the hospital which could be used in our archive collections, if so please see the Archive Appeals page to see how you can support our ongoing work.

The Multimedia Gallery page houses images and audio which offer a special and rare insight into the lives of hospital staff, patients and their friends and families spanning the last two centuries.
