Mater Hospital Book Launch


The launch of the publication of The Mater - The Story of a Belfast teaching Hospital and its Community, was held recently in the atrium of the Mater with over 200 people attending, with past or present links to the hospital or with an interest in its contribution to the life of the city.

The book was supported by a joint grant from the Mater's YP Trustees and the Belfast Trust's Charitable Funds Committee. The project was initiated by the Mater's Medical Staff Committee who worked with the publisher Cadolux to produce a hard-back book of 160 pages which, with many period photographs and a text starting with the 19th century background to the hospital's foundation, both provides a lasting document of the development of the north Belfast hospital and describes the life of staff and patients over the 132 years of its existence.

The book can be purchased either at the hospital shop or directly via the distributor at a cost of £15 (plus £3.95 p&p)
