HRH The Prince of Wales
The Prince of Wales spent time speaking with staff from the Emergency Department (ED) at Denmark Hill, visited one of the wards, and met staff from several other departments, including Chaplaincy, Radiology, Neurosurgery, Midwifery, and two Volunteers.

He also met three patients who were brought to King’s from the scene of the incident in Westminster and continue to be treated for their injuries.

Dr Emer Sutherland, Clinical Lead for the Emergency Department at Denmark Hill, was on shift during the incident on 22 March, and met The Prince of Wales during the visit.

She said: “The Prince’s visit was a great boost for the team following the events of this week. I am incredibly proud of them for working so well together and for their dedication during a major incident situation to make sure all patients were treated quickly and effectively.”

Mr Spyros Panagiotopoulos, Consultant Surgeon, who was involved in caring for some of the patients injured in Wednesday’s incident, added: “It’s very humbling that His Royal Highness chose to visit those affected after such a traumatic event. Both staff and patients really appreciated him taking the time to visit and give us his best wishes.”
