Prince William yesterday paid a Royal visit to the heroic St Thomas’ Hospital medics who treated casualties from last week’s Westminster terror attack.

His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge was greeted by doctors, nurses and physiotherapists who treated the wounded on Westminster Bridge, as well as staff who led the Trust’s response to the incident.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust said via a statement on Tuesday that it treated two patients.

They were one man and one woman. The man left hospital the day after the attack, and the woman was discharged on March 28.

 

The heroes of St Thomas’ Hospital are listed below, and appear in the photo from left to right: 

  • Dr Holly Gettings – A&E Consultant
  • Margaret Kallon – ward sister who looked after one of the two patients admitted to St Thomas’ for treatment
  • Rob Nichols – acting head of nursing who leads the team of site nurse practitioners who were key in the hospital’s response to the major incident as it unfolded
  • Carl McIntosh – security operations manager raised the alert so that the hospital could be ‘locked down’ following the terrorist attack, when there were fears of other attacks and so ensuring the safety of patients, visitors and staff was paramount
  • Charlotte Wilce – senior physiotherapist attended patients on Westminster Bridge after witnessing the attack from the hospital
  • Dr Gareth Lloyd – junior doctor attended patients on Westminster Bridge after witnessing the attack while he was on his way to work at St Thomas’ Hospital
  • Dr Colleen Anderson – junior doctor attended patients on Westminster Bridge after witnessing the attack from the hospital
  • Jess Child – resilience manager plays a key role in emergency planning and preparedness and was actively involved in managing the impact of the major incident on the hospital as it unfolded
