Collecting Memories

With the help of our volunteers, we are collecting the memories of local experiences of healthcare over the last 80 years.


The results will be archived with the NHS at 70: Story of Our Lives project led by the University of Manchester and will be featured in displays at Dardsley, the new home for Lostock Hall Medical Centre, and in community memory boxes.

Many of the stories are captured in a special edition of the Lostock Hall Magazine, copies available locally, and by request (or download here).


The following themes have emerged:

•Dardsley Doctors

•Prescription Pricing Authority

•Doctors that passed through Lostock Hall


A film of interviews for each theme has been produced in addition to an exhibition inside the waiting room at practice. Below is a video tour of the exhibition:
