The history of St Peter’s Hospital has gone on public display on two panels.

One set of panels, covering royal visits since the war, have been hung on the main hospital “street” – the corridor leading from the main reception to the Duchess of Kent wing.

It begins with the visit by Katherine, Duchess of Kent, to open the new theatre block in September, 1967, followed by her return in March 1992 to open the £11m block named in her honour.

Other visits by Princess Alexandra, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex are also on show.

Another panel is on display in the entrance foyer of the Stephanie Marks Diabetes Resource Centre, near the main entrance to the hospital.
