A century of nursing was marked at Hampstead’s Marie Curie Hospice at the weekend with a VIP visit.
Cacilia Anim, president of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), looked around the hospice in Lyndhurst Gardens on Sunday.
The visit coincided with the RCN’s 100th anniversary.
Nurses and staff showed Ms Anim around the 34-bed in-patient unit.
The RCN chief said: “There has been great change in the past 100 years – with more people having a choice of where to end their lives our nurses have to be more skilled than ever before.
“It was wonderful to spend our centenary day at Marie Curie’s Hospice and to meet those providing care on the front line.”
The Hampstead hospice was the first set up by Marie Curie.
