Nurse, heroine, icon
Mary Seacole's courage and compassion as a nurse provided soldiers with food and care during the 19th century Crimean war. To capture the spirit of Mary, and remind the public of the importance of the nursing profession, a memorial statue is planned for the grounds of St. Thomas' hospital.
