03 Jun 2020

About Followers 1 Reviews Exhibitors Photos Speakers

A small team joined Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson – doctors, suffragettes and life partners – in a volunteer medical unit bound for Paris. There they ran a hospital in a luxury hotel which was so successful they were asked by the British Army to run a second hospital in Boulogne. And then – in May 1915 – they were invited to run a major military hospital in the heart of London.Endell Street was unique. It was the only hospital within the British Army to be run and staffed by women – all the doctors, nurses and orderlies were female apart from a dozen or so male helpers. The women of Endell Street treated 26,000 wounded and after the war the hospital remained open to treat victims of the Spanish flu. Endell Street became renowned as the most popular hospital in the First World War – but it was not plain sailing.
