Patient information plaque (plaque)


These plaques would have hung in the Devon and Exeter Hospital, they give an insight into the strict admission procedures for hospital patients in the 18th and early 19th centuries. It was common for patients to only be admitted if they came to the hospital on a specific day or had a recommendation from a hospital governor or senior member of staff.


NO PATIENTS can be admitted who do not attend on THURSDAYS at Eleven o’Clock PRECISELY.
