We are so lucky to have a free health service that looks after us throughout our lives and is there to cure and comfort us in our time of need.

Chesterfield Royal Hospital is treasured by the community it serves with residents of the borough raising many thousands to enable it to continue its vital work.

Over the years royal visitors, football heroes and panto stars have visited the hospital to launch new facilities or provide much-needed cheer for patients.

We take a look back at the high spots in the run-up to 36th anniversary of the hospital at Calow being opened by the Queen.
