We are very proud that one of our Lifetime Foundation Freemen, Deirdre Barr has been appointed as Director of Operations for the NHS Nightingale Hospital which is being established at the Excel Centre in London.

Staff will be coming together from the military, NHS and St. John Ambulance. With experience in all three organisations, Deirdre is perfectly placed to pull together a highly professional and dedicated team, including other Guild members, to deliver this project of national significance.

We know that all our Freemen will be thinking of them and all NHS staff, including many of our Freemen who work in the NHS or who have answered the call to help, as they embark on delivering this challenging task.
