Robert Bentley Todd

Inscription

{On the statue's plinth:}
Robert Bentley Todd F.R.C.P. F.R.S. 1809 - 1860.

{On a small plaque at the base of the statue:}
Robert Bentley Todd (1809 - 1860)
Founder of King's College Hospital, radical reformer of medical education.
NHS King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The statue was originally erected in the great hall of the old King's College Hospital, near Lincoln's Inn Fields. and then in 1863, moved to the hospital's great hall in the Strand. When the hospital moved here in 1913 the statue was erected in its current location but, not having been designed for the outdoor life, it is showing the unkind effects of the weather over the last 100-odd years.

For other moved statues of charitable founders see Whittington at Archway.
