The Queen’s Medical Centre celebrates its 40th birthday today

What were you doing 40 years ago?  My pregnant wife and two sons were part of the crowd at Dunkirk Roundabout to welcome the Queen as she was driven to the QMC or The University Hospital as it was then known.    The Hospital has been a big part of our lives during the years since.

  1. Dr Allan Dodds says:

    I remember the opening and seeing Her Maj. Fantastic hospital- had a few minor ops there and always the best of treatment and care. Many Happy Returns!

  2. Yes I was there too. When I came to Nottingham in 1972 my place of work was the University’s new Department of Medicine in the General Hospital at the top of Park Row. Then in 1976 the Department of Medicine moved to temporary accommodation in the West Block of the Queens Medical Centre before moving to South Block a couple of years later. On the day the Queen opened the QMC I was there outside the new Medical School trying to get a glimpse of her through the crowd of people who had come to see her.
