To celebrate the 60th birthday of the NHS, visitors to the Florence Nightingale Museum can step back in time and meet a surgeon from the 1700s who will be paying a house call. A Nightingale-trained nurse will be assisting the doctor. Find out how "breathing a vein" (or bleeding) could cure you and which treatments are still used today.

Writer and historian Richard Kennedy will be performing between 10am and 4pm. Rick says, "I was a hospital administrator for many years and studied the theory and practice of 18th century medicine as a hobby, now I perform at community events, in schools and at universities using early medical instruments to illustrate 18th century medicine and discuss the similarities with how medicine in practised today."
