The Royal Hospital Celebrates International Nurses' Day

12th May 2019

Chelsea Pensioners, staff & volunteers at the Royal Hospital joined nurses & carers from the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary to celebrate International Nurses' Day.

Following their recent award of a Platinum accreditation for end of life care from the Gold Standard Framework, staff from the MTI were in good spirits this week as they came together in recognition of their exemplary work over the past year.

Taking the opportunity to enjoy a selection of cakes and refreshments, they were joined by Governor of the Royal Hospital, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, who took the chance to thank the team for their "hard work and committed dedication".

A number of Chelsea Pensioners also joined the celebrations and very much enjoyed posing for photos with the team.

Infirmary Bombing
Remembering the Soane Infirmary bombing

Today marks 80 years following the bombing of the Royal Hospital’s Infirmary during the Second World War. The magnificent Infirmary, which once stood on the current site of the National Army Museum, was hit by a parachute bomb on 16 April 1941 – destroying most of the building and tragically ending the lives of 13 people.
