At the Royal Hospital Chelsea, we believe in positive active ageing.

This means we want to enable and support our Pensioners to continue to enjoy and participate in activities and life in a meaningful way. In order to do that we provide a range of care support services from our team of professionals and ex-military staff.

This includes social care, rehabilitation, medical and nursing services along with the important role of our Captains of Companies who have an oversight of the welfare of Pensioners.

As a registered care home with nursing, domiciliary care service and independent GP practice, the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and required to demonstrate compliance with their fundamental standards. Our latest inspection report can be found here.
