Wall of Honour - image of the wall

The Wall of Honour

In the central atrium of the Royal Society of Medicine are a series of floor to ceiling glass panels inscribed with the names of doctors, nurses, surgeons and other professionals from across the spectrum of medicine and healthcare.

This is the Wall of Honour - and it's open to you.


Who would you like to recognise?

Whether or not you are an RSM member, you can use this wall to honour someone important to you from the world of medicine and healthcare.

It could be a family member, friend or mentor who inspired you in your career, A GP, hospice or hospital worker you admire, even the person who delivered your children or grandchildren.

They don't need to be as RSM member, or even still working. In fact, inclusion on the Wall of honour can be a wonderful tribute to someone who has recently retired or passed away.
