Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), a social reformer, was celebrated for her nursing work and management during the Crimean War. She was the founder of modern nursing and instituted nurses’ training. This statue stands above the front door of the former Nightingale Maternity Home (1904-1970s), which is now a Nightingale Macmillan Continuing Care Unit. The façade of the building is listed.
