Past and present staff from Guernsey's Princess Elizabeth Hospital are being asked to send photos of the hospital from the last 70 years to mark its birthday.

The hospital was officially opened on 23 June 1949 and officials want current and past employees to help share their memories to form an exhibition looking back on the role it has played in islander's lives.

The States of Guernsey are asking people to email their photos over to them and the details can be found on their website.

The launch of the audio visual exhibition will be on 23 June, to coincide with the date it opened.

Prior to that, islanders from across the Bailiwick are being invited to bring their photos to a special afternoon tea party to have their stories recorded for the exhibition.

The tea party will take place at the hospital on 25 May from 12.00pm until 4.00pm in the Emma Ferbanche room.

The hospital are working alongside the Priaulx Library, Guernsey Museum, Government House and Island Archives and it is the first way of documenting the important role the hospital has played over the last seven decades.
