‘I profess to learn and to teach anatomy not from books but from dissections, not from the tenets of Philosophers but from the fabric of Nature'.
William Harvey, 1628 (first described the circulation of blood)
The Old Operating Theatre, London
Wednesday 16th November 2016.
KYTOS is pleased to announce our first ever Disscetion Club trip:
The trip will involve a full tour of the specimens and artefacts on display, and a special demonstration of Victorian surgery in the operating theatre itself.
The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret is a museum of surgical history and one of the oldest surviving operating theatres. It is located in the garret of St Thomas's Church, Southwark, in London, on the original site of St Thomas' Hospital.
We will be leaving school at around 12.45pm and returning at approximately 6.30pm on the day. If you wish to attend, please provisionally sign up using the form on this site. Letters will then be sent home to parents/guardians of the first 30 students who apply. This must be signed and returned by the specified date, with the appropriate payment (approximate cost of £15)
