The Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead was a small cottage hospital before it became established as a specialist unit for the treatment of facial injuries in WWII led by Sir Archibald McIndoe, Consultant Plastic Surgeon to the RAF.
We will meet in the atmospheric doctors' mess, hardly changed from WWII days when it was the RAF officers' mess. Lectures about the role of the hospital and plastic and maxillofacial surgery in the treatment of war injuries and a buffet lunch will be followed by a tour of the hospital and grounds by Mr Bob Marchant, a former Operating Department Practitioner who worked with Sir Archibald in the 1950s and is now Curator of the McIndoe archive and Secretary of the famous Guinea Pig Club.
