Erection date: 8/12/2017
This plaque is to honour those healthcare workers who have dedicated themselves to aiding others in times of war, conflict and catastrophe throughout history.
8th December 2017
Mary Seacole Trust
Unveiled about 18 months after the nearby Seacole statue, this memorial was planned and financed at the same time. Chelsea Pensioners and the armed forces were represented at the unveiling, in 2017, giving a clue to what types of 'conflict and catastrophe' were in mind at the time. Publishing in 2020 we are all too aware that the new-found respect felt by the nation for healthcare workers has everything to do with a quite different type of conflict.
