This interactive workshop explores what it was like to have been a medical practitioner and patient in St Thomas’ Hospital during the 19th century. Our visitors will explore the role of an apothecary, creating their own herbal remedies to treat a range of illnesses, and also experience the ‘bloody’ world of surgery before the arrival of antiseptics and anaesthetics, when a mock amputation is performed on a volunteer. This session provides an exciting way for young children to engage with history and encourages creative thinking and imagination.
