Organization profile

Profile Information

The Centre has particular strengths in the areas of Hospital History, Mental Health and Learning Disabilities and Child Health. In the last three years we have received funding for our research from the Wellcome Trust Medical Humanities Board and  the AHRC and we partnered the Thackray Medical Museum in their successful bid to the Arts Council  for a grant to develop three new galleries related to war and medicine. We have developed effective partnerships with South Yorkshire Mental Health Trust – where Rob Ellis holds a Visiting Fellowship – the Thackray Medical Museum, Mind and Leeds City Museums. Our work in the area of mental health and learning disabilities has been supported by the AHRC Connected Communities strand
