Her Majesty the Queen has been our Patron since 1958 when we received our Royal Charter and we are deeply saddened by her death on 8 September 2022.
It was a great honour that Her Majesty was able to open our building at 36 Portland Place in 1982 and showed a keen interest in our growth and development over the years. We were delighted to send a delegation to her Patron’s Lunch event in the Mall in 2016 and she frequently invited representatives of our organisation to attend one of the Annual Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace.

She recognised and supported all healthcare workers by offering her patronage to institutions like ours and she will be very much missed.
