Whipps Cross Voices - Do you have a story to tell?

We’re looking for participants and volunteers to get involved in Whipps Cross Voices to help us capture stories about the hospital and preserve them as a historical resource for the future.

Whatever your connection with the hospital, from local residents and patients, to current and former staff and volunteers, and nurses and others who trained at the hospital and/or lived on the hospital site, we want to hear from you.

We’ll be adding new oral histories to the collections and making stories of the hospital accessible in new interactive ways in the archives space and on the hospital site.

There will be a range of opportunities to participate in the project, depending on your interests and the time you have available. You may be interested in recording your memories and experiences of the hospital; in developing new skills working with in the archives with the existing collections held by Barts Health NHS Trust; or in helping us to curate stories of the hospital for activities and displays online and at Whipps Cross.

Watch our launch event to find out more about how to get involved.

Become a project volunteer 

We're bringing together a team of archive, event and recording volunteers to help us. This is a chance to meet new people - or catch up with those you've not seen for a while! - to learn new skills and share the history of Whipps Cross Hospital.  You can choose between short, even one-off activities, or joining us as a regular volunteer with the project.  If you are interested either email us directly or through the volunteer page on the website and we'll be in touch.

Whipps Cross Voices is led by Barts Health Archives, in collaboration with the Whipps Cross Hospital Redevelopment team. The project is being funded through a grant from Barts Charity.
