Our Nursing Care

Since the hospital’s beginnings in 1899, the quality and compassion of our nursing care has been the beating heart of King Edward VII’s Hospital.

A Culture Of Kindness

Sisters Fanny and Agnes Keyser founded our hospital in 1899 by opening the doors of their home to wounded soldiers returning from war. They created a culture of kindness which has laid the foundation for what King Edward VII’s Hospital is today: A safe, warm, friendly and compassionate environment for patients to return to health with as little disruption as possible.

Our nurses are a family: their culture of kindness a core value.

When you walk through our front door, you become a part of our family too.

Personalised Care

Every patient that comes to King Edward VII’s Hospital is treated with dignity, respect and kindness. You are so much more than just a number, and we deliver a truly personalised care package that will go above and beyond your expectations. Nothing is too much trouble for our staff, who always go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.


Commitment To Our Staff

We understand that for our nurses to deliver the highest levels of care, they must feel happy, supported and valued. We make several commitments to our nursing team that helps them provide the personalised care that has become a hallmark of King Edward VII’s Hospital.

  • We keep a strictly low patient to nurse ratio – meaning our nurses are never overloaded or rushed and always have time to assist you.
  • We have a strictly limited bed capacity – ensuring that the same nursing team will be on hand to serve your every need.
  • We foster a family atmosphere – many of our nurses have worked here for 10+ years and know each other by name.
  • We provide regular training – giving you access to the latest treatments, techniques and understanding.
