Do you have an ear for detail? Can you type? Would you like to listen to voices from the past speaking about their experiences of medicine and health care, the NHS, treatment for mental health and much more? At the George Marshall Medical Museum, there are a number of oral history collections, some of which do not yet have a transcription.

Each oral history needs to be transcribed, with timings and summaries added, so that they can become invaluable sources of information for researchers, staff and volunteers. Recently the Museum has used transcripts of oral histories to support the Worcester Royal Infirmary Nurses’ League in campaigns for funding, in temporary exhibitions for #NHS70 celebrations, and is also using them for a new planned audio tour of the Museum.

If you are unable to travel, or feel more at home on your sofa, then transcribing oral histories can be done from the comfort of your own home. The Museum has notes and guidance for creating oral histories, and can either send a digital file or file on a CD to wherever you are based.

They have no expectations for the numbers of hours, or how often you might like to help, so please get in touch if you’d like more information.
