St Thomas' Hospital

St Thomas' Hospital is housed in a large, admittedly rather ugly building on the south bank of the River Thames in the Lambeth district of London. It may not look like somewhere worth noticing, but this hospital has a wealth of history and has been active in pioneering medical advances and education for decades. The NHS Hospital is part of the King's College London School of Medicine. The hospital has been operating free medical care and charitable work since the 12th century, although obviously its premises, and one would hope medical practices, have changed much over the years. 

 

The hospital is named after Sir Thomas Becket, the benevolent bishop who was cruelly murdered by drunken knights, and it was originally run by monks, as a shelter for the poor and homeless. It received patronage from London Mayor Richard Whittington (who inspired the eponymous pantomime), in the 15th century, when he added a ward for unwed mothers, a somewhat dated concept now. The governor, Sir Thomas Guy, also founded Guy's Hospital in the 18th century, as a place to treat incurables that were discharged from St Thomas'. 

 

Parts of the old hospital are still visible, including the parish church, which now contains offices, and the Old Operating Theatre, which is now a grim but insightful museum, where visitors can see the old operating table. Many of the patients who passed through here were poor, as wealthy clients would be operated on at home, and the mortality rate was high due to poor hygiene and the shock of an operation administered without antiseptic. 

 

The hospital is associated with many notable historic figures, the most famous of which is Florence Nightingale, 'the lady of the lamp', who was much lauded for her nursing efforts during the Crimean War. She established a nursing school at St Thomas' Hospital and since her death has become a sort of saint of nursing, with new nurses taking the Nightingale Pledge and International Nurses Day celebrated on her birthday. Other famed nurses at the hospital include Linda Richards and Agnes Elizabeth Jones and many other talented surgeons and physicians worked and taught at the hospital.

 

Today, the hospital's affiliated centres still provide some of the best medical education in London and the hospital continues to provide high-quality care for free. The area surrounding the hospital is also a great place to stay due to its proximity to the sights of Westminster. There are several hotels nearby, including the Novotel at London Waterloo, which offers reliable service and reasonable rates. The Park Plaza Riverbank London is a 4-star hotel with stylish, modern surroundings. Days Hotel Waterloo offers low-cost rooms and a convenient location for the South Bank and The Bridge is a charming hotel housed in a pub.
