The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is preparing for the second round Heritage Lottery Fund application of its campaign to develop the existing Museum and its internationally-important collections.

The £4.2m Lister Project will allow the RCSEd to develop as a public learning space while maintaining its primary role as a self-funding, charitable body for professional education.

Our Fellows and Members have already raised £200,000 for the project, in addition to generous donations from The Binks Trust of £100,000 and The Wolfson Foundation of £50,000.

The second-stage application will be submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund this June and, as the deadline approaches, the RCSEd has released new visuals showing how the project would transform our Museum into a major learning space and visitor attraction.

HLFOur 500-year-old College wants to tell the on-going story of a subject that continues to fascinate both medical professionals and the wider public; and to conserve that history for future generations, through preservation of the building, of the collections and the archive for research.
