Oral histories

The Heritage Centre has been collecting oral histories from notable anaesthetists for several years.

We have interviewed several military anaesthetists for the World War One exhibitions. Doctors who served in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan have taken part and discussed their experiences and the developments in patient care they were involved in.

If you would like a transcription of any interview, please contact us.


In 1944, Westminster Hospital produced a series of training films for anaesthetists, covering subjects including chloroform & ether anaesthesia, handling & care of the patient, and a step-by-step epidural technique.
