Royal Masonic Hospital

Featuring Worshipful Brother Gerald

Share this video Used as a military hospital during the First World War, the Royal Masonic Hospital was dedicated in 1933 by King George the VI, a prominent mason in his own right. The hospital was established to serve masons and their ladies. A school of nursing, followed by a nurses residence was established later. Expansions took place to the hospital in 1958 and again in 1976. In 1977 the facility began accepting non-masons as patients. Due to financial pressures it was acquired by Hammersmith Hospitals in 1992. You may from time to time see nurses prominently displaying a square and compass belt buckle. This buckle does not mean they are freemasons, they are proud graduates of the Royal Masonic Hospital.
