ABOUT 30 people visited a hospital museum open day on Sunday.

Stamford Hospital opened its museum for visitors to browse a range of exhibits and displays, which give people a chance to take a behind-the-scenes look into the hospital’s history.

One of the new exhibits on display was a 1920s midwifery case with equipment.

Hospital matron and site manager Sue Brooks said: “We had about 30 people in on Sunday, which I was pleased with considering we were only open for two hours.

“People were very interested in the history of the hospital which is really nice.”

The museum, which is staffed by volunteers, opens for groups and on a Sunday every couple of months. Since its opening in August, Sue said more than 1,000 people have visited the museum.
