A Flying Visit to King’s College Hospital – London (23.2.2022)

Assessing Statues Outside King’s College Hospital – London!

My partner – Gee – had just finished a 12-hour nightshift as an NHS Midwife, had quickly returned to Sutton to take the children to school and then returned to hospital to participate in a mandatory training exercise. The lack of a strong union in a rapidly privatising NHS has led to this kind of debilitating and exploitative work schedule. To make sure Gee was safe on the return journey – I travelled with her and waited whilst she attended her course – carrying-on my academic work through my ipad and ‘phone, etc. When back together we brought a coffee and a sandwich and then quickly looked around the historic building. In the true spirit of ‘Black Lives Matter. (#BLM) we checked all the statues for dodgy characters! Travel with us and enjoy these photographs and videos! For the record – Robert Bently Todd (1809-1860) – was a renowned Surgeon who DID NOT own slaves!
