From 2007, LHSA worked alongside the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh Arts Committee and Ginkgo Projects to create ‘Narratives’, a permanent installation reflecting the history of the Infirmary as a hospital for the people of Edinburgh and Scotland.

When the Lauriston Place site closed in 2003, LHSA took in a vast amount of archival material and a number of objects and artefacts.  These included over 100 plaques from different wards, or even beds within wards. This permanent installation at the Infirmary's new location at Little France includes some of these original donor plaques alongside newly commissioned artwork by artist Marian Fountain.

The exhibition was unveiled in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in February 2009, as part of year-long celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the NHS.
