St Francis Hospital Nursing School

Administrative / Biographical history

In 1948, when the National Health Service Act came into operation, the St Francis Hospital came under the administrative control of Camberwell Hospital Management Committee, which included St Giles and Dulwich Hospitals. In 1966 St Francis Hospital joined the King's College Teaching Hospital Group. This resulted in St Francis Hospital Nursing School being merged with King's College Hospital Nursing School.
