This new exhibition commemorates the centenary of Erskine Hospital, 100 years after its foundation in 1916. Erskine 100 examines the involvement of pioneering surgeon Sir William Macewen, in the foundation of the hospital and his contribution to the development of prosthetics, most famously the ‘Erskine Limb’. The exhibition also emphasises the vocational rehabilitation that early patients received alongside their physical rehabilitation, considering their reintegration into society as well as their medical treatment.
