Words of Hope and Kindness

Home > Exhibitions > Words of Hope and Kindness

When the College’s founder Peter Lowe wrote about his motivations to improve standards of healthcare in the 16th century, his words were about hope and humanity, as much as learning and practice. These words of kindness are echoed through the centuries by the physicians and surgeons of Glasgow. Our exhibition gives voice to these expressions of hope and humanity, as we live through and recover from the Covid pandemic.
