All those who join will be offered a warm and friendly welcome into The Company of Nurses and there are many opportunities for Freemen to meet other members of the Company. A wide range of social activities are organised throughout the year for Freemen and their guests. Functions are held many in venues that are not readily accessible by members of the public, some within the great Livery halls of the City of London.

Freedom Ceremonies

Freedom ceremonies will be held periodically throughout the year when new applicants will have the opportunity to be granted Freedom of the Company. Freedom of the Company is a privilege that is conferred for life and demonstrates your commitment to The Company of Nurses. These ceremonies will be advertised below and will usually be followed by a reception which is open to all Freemen and their guests.

If you are interested in applying to become a Freeman of The Company of Nurses, please go to the Joining our Company page of this website and complete a Membership Application form

Wednesday 29 June 6 pm
Education and Professional Development Event via Zoom
Schools and Public Health Nursing

We have great pleasure in welcoming Dr Sharon White OBE and Jess Streeting who will present their work  at our next education and professional development meeting which is aimed at improving the health of young people. Sharon and Jess's presentation will directly feed into our schools' outreach program which supports the Livery and the Lord Mayor's efforts in reducing violence, promoting healthy behaviours to maximise school attendance and career development as well as ultimately tackling child poverty. Jess will present her current PhD research covering this important area of improving the public's health.

We do hope that you can join us for this event. You may apply for a link in the usual way i.e. by emailing education@companyofnurses.co.uk and the link will be sent to your mailbox a few days before the event.

Thank you for your continued interest and support to our education program which goes from strength to strength! Please do let us know if there are any subjects that you would like to have included in the program.

Wednesday 20 July 1.30pm
Tour of The Charterhouse and gardens

We are very pleased that we are finally going to be able to visit The Charterhouse and gardens this summer after many rearranged dates. The Charterhouse is truly a hidden gem nestled next to the City of London. Formerly a medieval monastery dating from 1371, then a Tudor palace and a boys school, it is now an almshouse, currently home to over 40 residents known as brothers (men and women). The tour will be followed by tea and cake, giving us an opportunity to chat and catch up with each other. The cost for the tour and tea will be £40 per person and applications are open to Freemen and guests.

For further details and a booking form please click here [pdf] [Word]. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 6 July.
