St Bartholomew’s has survived turbulent periods and many threats to its existence. We look at ten moments that have shaped Britain’s oldest hospital.
On the eve of our 900th birthday, staff and patients have been sharing their memories of St Bartholomew’s Hospital through the years.

The fantastic @BHAandM ‘Life and Death in the Archives’ exhibition has concluded after an extended run at Barts Hospital courtyard. It was great to see the 900 year history of the site told in such an exciting way using items from the museum and archives #histmed #barts900
Great to see the Trust Chair enjoying our #Barts900 exhibition before it closes - remember, it will be coming down on Wed 20 Sep, so come and see it before it closes!
Our 900th birthday celebrations continued in style yesterday with a fabulous multicultural food festival for our hardworking teams, hosted in the square 🤤 #Barts900
St Bartholomew's Hospital Museum is now closed for the duration of the North Wing restoration works by @BartsHeritage - but you can still come and enjoy our 'captivating' #Barts900 outdoor exhibition in the hospital square for another few weeks!

This pair are equally good too - intriguing wooden figures who may once have stood at the entrance to either a ward or the hospital. The shorter figure may have been placed in a high position. In 1657 the hospital paid for them to be painted #barts900 #histmed
I think this is most probably my favourite display at @BHAandM - I have a fondness for the poor wooden trephining head and the set of bleeding instruments too! #Barts900 #histmed
My final day trail begins with the Hogarth stair - quite a few people taking a last look at the museum @BHAandM #histmed #Barts900
On my walk from on-call room to cath lab, a nice reminder of our former rules for patients as part of our #Barts900 display @BartsHeritage @BartsHospital @NHSBartsHealth
