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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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
