At the heart of the RSM’s premises is our magnificent atrium, filled with natural light and sunshine.

Floor – to – ceiling glass walls surround the atrium and it is here that the Royal Society of Medicine has established the Wall of Honour.

At the time of this programme going to print, there are over 800 names inscribed on the wall.

In most cases, the inscriptions have been arranged by family, friends or colleagues based in the UK and overseas.

Those honoured may have passed away, whilst others are working or are retired.

Names have been inscribed in the order in which applications have been received and have been added panel by panel around the glass walls.

In addition, the Society has created a ‘Virtual Wall of Honour’.

This is an opportunity for family, friends and colleagues, wherever they are in the world, to write whatever they wish about the person they have honoured on a dedicated page on the RSM’s website.

Photograph can also be uploaded.

Every year family and friends are invited to a ceremony to honour those whose names have been inscribed on the wall.

The first three ceremonies each attracted over 700 guests with visitors flying in from around the world.

The ceremonies have been special family occasions and have been attended by great – grandparents and grand – grandchildren.

Such has been the success and popularity of this initiative that there is now limited number of ‘slots’ remain available on a first come, first served basis.

The Wall of Honour project was established in 2008 and is an initiative created by the Society to secure funding for its provision of medical education for doctors of today and tomorrow.
