Admin HistoryThe General Hospital Nottingham Nurses' League was founded in 1948 to provide a forum for discussion of professional matters between nurses employed in or trained at the hospital, to provide social contacts, and to raise money to assist elderly and needy members. In 1971, following the integration of various different Schools of Nursing into one Area School for the hospitals in Nottingham, the League was reconstituted, and its name changed to the Nottingham Hospitals Nurses' League. The first Annual General Meeting of the new League was held in November 1972. In 1981, the League became the Nottingham Nurses' League, in order to incorporate nurses working outside hospitals.
