Sadly, you have now missed your chance to see rare plans from the archives and the Museum's copy of Florence Nightingale's Notes on Hospitals. The display about Florence Nightingale's impact on nursing and hospital design (and the changes which could have been implemented at Worcester Infirmary) has now been taken down. However, it was so popular, we have uploaded the exhibition interpretation for you, as below. You can still book an appointment with the Curator to view our copy of Notes on Hospitals. Contact us.
