The Florence Nightingale Museum, located at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, serves as a unique resource for those looking into the history of nursing. It is visited by nurses from all around the world and school children, as well as many tourists to London. In 2020, the bicentenary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the museum launched a new exhibition – Nightingale in 200 objects – and was set for a spectacular year of visitors. Unfortunately the museum has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and is now struggling to stay financially viable. This is where YOU can help…
We are calling on ALL NURSES to rise to the challenge of saving this important museum. The ‘surgical glove’ has been thrown down to all of you by a 91 year old Nightingale Nurse.
Please commit to 200 hospital corners, or some other task, and ask friends and family to support by paying direct to the
GoFundMe website – Florence Nightingale Museum appeal

… and don’t forget to visit the Museum website where you can still purchase books and gifts. More importantly to visit the museum once it reopens and keep this valuable resource available for generations to come.
