This free exhibition uses personal stories to examine all aspects of medical care on the front line, from the trenches of the First World War to present-day Afghanistan.
Saving Lives looks at the physical and emotional impact on individuals in fighting wars and the wider consequences for society. Follow a casualty through the medical chain, from the battlefield to field hospitals and on to specialist care at home.
Ever wondered how medics cope under fire? In interviews specially commissioned for the exhibition, nurses, surgeons and soldiers - as well as volunteers from the local 207 (Manchester) Field Hospital - speak about the motivations and experiences of medics who serve on the front line.
From routine health to battlefield casualties and treating disease, find out how military medicine has evolved across a century of conflict and helped shape the medical care we receive today
