Open Lecture -  Heritage Lecture:

The Incurables Movement: a Victorian

healthcare revolution

Presenter: Sinead Moriarty, Major Gift and Prospect Research Executive, Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability

The Royal Hospital for Incurables (RHI) (latterly the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability) was the first institution in the UK to specifically offer care for people who had been diagnosed as having 'incurable' illnesses or injuries. The founder of the RHI, Dr Andrew Reed, a prominent Victorian philanthropist, established the hospital because he identified a gap in care. People with long term, chronic or incurable illnesses were being discharged from general hospitals as 'incurable' with little or no support available for their ongoing care. The new charity was inundated with applications from people seeking to be admitted. However the RHI was not alone in attempting to address this gap in healthcare provision. This lecture will examine the Victorian 'incurables' movement, both in the UK and farther afield, and the role played by Dr Reed, and the RHI, within this movement.
