About Us

If you worked at the Middlesex Hospital or you did your training there you can join The Middlesex Hospital Nurses’ Benevolent Fund.

The majority of members join as a way of maintaining links with the hospital despite the fact that it was demolished in 2008. Membership entitles you to a copy of the Annual Journal, which contains reports on the activities of the committee and news from other members as well as articles of general interest.

The Journal is a forum for staying connected and renewing contacts; a directory of members is published every 5 years. It also gives advance details of the Annual General Meeting held in the autumn, at University College London Hospital on Euston Road, together with a reunion at which there is a guest speaker. All members are welcome to attend and enjoy the opportunity to meet former colleagues and to have lunch.

Membership also entitles you to apply for:

  • Educational Bursaries
  • Benevolence to meet a variety of needs

All applications for benevolence are dealt with in strict confidence by the Committee. Members can request an appropriate application form. Please use the contact form on Contact Us page.
