UK Medical Collection Group

The UK Medical Collections Group was set up in 2005 to bring together and raise awareness of the country’s wonderful medical collections.

We believe strongly that there has never been a better time for a long view of our medical heritage to be put to the service of the public. We work together to promote the understanding, awareness and care of medical collections across the UK for the benefit of all.
