The League of Charing Cross Hospital nurses was founded in 1932 by Mary Smallwood Cochrane, then Matron of CXH. The overall purpose of Hospital Leagues was to provide support for their nurses at a time when there was little or no help should a nurse get sick and little professional development.
The League of Charing Cross Hospital Nurses was founded in 1932 by Mary S. Cochrane RRC, Matron of Charing Cross Hospital. There are currently about 300 members.
Membership is open to those nurses who have undertaken all or part of their training in Charing Cross Hospital or who hold a statutory qualification and have held a nursing appointment within Charing Cross Hospital for one year. Students who are undertaking their clinical practice at Charing Cross Hospital may become Associate Members.
This is the ideal place to keep a record of those birthdays, anniversaries and other “must remember” dates. A perpetual calendar in which each month depicts a different black and white photograph spanning from the earliest nurses’ photographs, to the 1970s.
