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

We want to support our Pensioners to continue to enjoy life and take part in rewarding activities. In order to do that, our team provides a range of care support services, including social care, rehabilitation, medical and nursing services delivered by professionals. Alongside this, our Captains of Companies play an important role overseeing the welfare of Pensioners.

A registered care home

As a registered care home with nursing, domiciliary care service and an 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.
