Wall of Honour - image of the wall

The Royal Society of Medicine

 

At the heart of the RSM's premises is our magnificent Atrium, filled with natural light and sunshine.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls surround the Atrium and it is on this glass that The Royal Society of Medicine has established the Wall of Honour.

By supporting this project, you may choose a person to honour and have their name engraved on the Wall for future generations to see, as a personal way of saying thank you.

Who to honour

 

You're welcome to honour anyone who worked in the medical sector or healthcare field.

They might be:

A member of your family, a friend, someone who influenced your career, someone you admired, your GP, an organisation (hospital, hospice), the person who delivered your child/children or grandchild/grandchildren, someone who is working, retired or who has passed away.

Alan Failing
The Royal Society of Medicine extends condolences to Elizabeth Failing, on the passing of Alan. Many of the inscriptions on the Wall of Honour (as well as other signage around the RSM building) were completed by Alan. He took great pride in his work and recognised the importance and value of the inscriptions to families, friends and colleagues who had arranged for the name of a loved one to be installed on the Wall. Alan was the ideal signwriter – accurate, reliable, punctual, easy to get on with and offered the RSM a fair price for his work.

5th Anniversary
The end of 2013 marks five years for the RSM's flourishing Wall of Honour initiative. We have inscribed over 700 names on the wall in our Atrium. We have also arranged a page on our website for each and every name, so family and friends can write about their loved one and upload photos. During this 5 year period, over 1,500 people have attended our Wall of Honour ceremonies and over £1.2 million has been raised, to support the medical education provided by the RSM. The Society is most grateful to those who have philanthropically supported this programme. We look forward to inscribing more names on our Wall of Honour in 2014.
