Our Values and our Faith
Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, blessing the new Mildmay Hospital building in 2014
Mildmay’s inspiration and values come from our Christian faith. These values, enriched and shared by many people, including those of other faiths and of no religious faith, underpin all our work. We work in a multi-cultural society and are proud of our roots.
Mildmay values the contribution of everyone who works or volunteers for Mildmay, of people who use our service and their families, of other organisations and funders who work closely with us, and of the community, churches and individual supporters who sustain our work.
Our inspiration and values derive from our Christian faith. Our mission is to reach out to those in greatest need, providing love, care and compassion to the sick and vulnerable.
Mildmay was set up as a Christian medical mission in response to the cholera epidemic in 1860s London.
Mildmay’s faith and strong sense of mission to educate, share knowledge and care for those in greatest need continues to underpin our work.
Mildmay places the individual at the very heart of all its planning, services and actions

Mildmay has been caring for people since the 1860s and in that time tens of thousands of people have passed through our doors. Each one of them had their own unique experience of the hospital and its dedicated staff.
