We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of our Queen after a lifetime of faithful service to her country.

Many of us will have worked on Princess Elizabeth Ward, named in the 1920s after a visit by the Duchess of York (later the Queen Mother) for her daughter, Princess Elizabeth. Queen Elizabeth also visited the hospital several times during her long reign.

The Nurses’ League join with the nation in sending their sincere condolences to her family.
