Heritage & Archives
The Heritage and Archives Fund now enables the College to be more than a mere passive recipient of generosity. It is now possible for the College to collect actively and with purpose. The collections will grow coherently, and will better be able to illustrate the long and often epic story of surgeons and surgery. In this way you will be helping to support the College of Surgeons Museum, which is not only a magnificent resource for Fellows, Trainees and the medical profession, but is also a vital and essential means for the College to interact with the wider community.
The Heritage and Archives Fund also supports the ongoing preservation of the College’s collections, be they documents, works of art, historic surgical instruments or rare books. Preservation and conservation is important work, ensuring that the College’s assets will continue to survive for the benefit of future generations of Fellows and Trainees.
