A legacy of inclusion for future generations

What began as a campaign for a memorial statue of Crimean War nurse Mary Seacole has evolved into a charitable trust working for a fairer society and a more representative NHS
The much-publicised statue of Mary Seacole has been standing proudly outside St Thomas’ Hospital in central London for just over a year. The bronze sculpture of the Jamaican-born nurse, which faces the Houses of Parliament across the Thames, was unveiled in June last year after more than 12 years of campaigning and fundraising.
