Tell us your story about being a patient at Mildmay

Do you or someone you know, have a story of a Mildmay experience (from any era) that you would like to share?

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

Renee P contacted us recently to tell us her story:

"I was admitted to the Mildmay when I was 6 years old in 1946. Had a pain in my leg due to a fall. The doctors there realised I had osteomyelitis, which was very rare then.

If not for the Mildmay I would not be here at nearly 80 years old and still enjoying life.

Thank you all

Renee P

We are collecting your stories to share online and add to our archive.

The Queen's cousin, Princess Alexandra, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy, has visited Mildmay several times over many years


Because NHS funding problems, the doors might close at Mildmay. This is why we want to collect your stories now, while we still can.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given us a reprieve of sorts, as we admit both HIV and homeless patients to help ease the burden on NHS acute wards. We continue to lobby MPs and government ministers to persuade them that Mildmay’s unique services should be commissioned directly by NHS England, like other specialist services already are.

Our long-term future is still uncertain, but for now, we continue to care for sick and vulnerable people as we have been doing for over 150 years.
