Description

Plate taken from the 'Illustrated London News'. Queen Victoria (1819-1901) visited the hospital to open a new wing. The expansion of the London Hospital, 'managed on the principle of administering an ever-increasing and practically unlimited amount of gratuitous medical relief, without providing in the first instance funds to pay for its maintenance', was part of a wider effort to reform health care, but the instituion ran into financial difficulties in the late 1870s, prompting further debate into how health care should be funded.
