: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE QUEEN'S INSTITUTE OF
DISTRICT NURSING by Her Grace HILDA , Duchess of RICHMOND AND GORDON, C.B.E.
The Queen's Institute of District Nursing was founded in 1887, when Queen Victoria expressed her desire that Y70,000 of the offering made by the women of Great Britain and Ireland at her Jubilee should be devoted to the training and provision of nurses for the sick poor in their own homes.
The work was carried on under the title of ' Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for Nurses' until 1928, when a change was made in order to give a more exact description of the work undertaken by the Institute.
The title of 'Queen's Institute of District Nursing' was then incorporated by Royal Charter. A superintendent and three nurses in a small flat in Edinburgh were the commencement of the work in Scotland.
Since then the service has steadily increased, and there are now 547 Affiliated District Nursing Associations in Scotland, employing about a thousand nurses.
The objects of the Institute are to provide a special course of training in district nursing to State registered nurses, to maintain a supply of Queen's Nurses to meet the needs of the affiliated associations throughout Scotland, and to encourage the formation of associations in areas hitherto unnursed, so that a highly skilled nursing service may be within the reach of every home in the land.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
