Celebrating our incredible Nursing and Care team

The COVID-19 pandemic has proved the courage and commitment of the nursing profession both at the Royal Hospital and across the UK. Here we take a closer look at the incredible impact and dedication of our nursing and care team and how they’ve risen to the challenges they’ve faced in recent months and in years gone by. 

Over the past year, the Royal Hospital’s wonderful team of nurses and carers has gone above and beyond to look after the health, safety and wellbeing of the Chelsea Pensioners. The Royal Hospital has a proud tradition of excellent nursing. Whether it’s the day-to-day care of our veterans or stepping up to the plate in a crisis, our Pensioners can rest assured that the team will do all they can to ensure they receive the best possible care.
