RNOH hosts talk about First World War Nursing

Nurses from the Mary Wardell hospital 1914

The RNOH is hosting a free event hosted by Sarah Paterson, Librarian from the Imperial War Museum exploring nursing in the First World War.

This talk is facilitated by Pegleg Productions as part of ‘Searching for the Grey Lady: A Ghost from WW1 at the RNOH’, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund through a First World War – Then and Now grant. To mark the end of the Centenary of the First World War, between March 2019 - March 2020, the project focuses on the RNOH’s First World War heritage and how it affected the founding and evolution of this world-renowned orthopaedic hospital.

Pegleg Productions aims to reveal and share the RNOH's First World War legacy of rehabilitation and renewal from the perspective of people whose lives continue to be shaped by that heritage - in this case, the RNOH nursing community.

The event takes place on Wednesday 9 October, from 6 pm to 9 pm, at RNOH, Herbert Seddon Teaching Centre, Brockley Hill, Stanmore, Middlesex. HA7 4LP.

Spaces are limited so book your place now.
