HRH the Prince of Wales, the President of The King’s Fund, today officially unveiled a range of new resources and services at the charity’s central London headquarters.
The King’s Fund’s building has been transformed to include a new 225-seat auditorium and adjoining conservatory; a public café; an information centre; and a free-to-join Friends' scheme for those involved in health and social care.
His Royal Highness also officially launched the charity’s new website, which offers access to thousands of easily searchable and authoritative resources.
Niall Dickson, The King’s Fund’s Chief Executive said: '
As the NHS enters a harsher economic climate, it’s more vital than ever that doctors, nurses, managers and policy-makers are able to come together to share learning and develop ideas.
'We want The King’s Fund to be at the heart of this and hope that anyone involved in bringing about change will use our resources to help them think, learn and exchange ideas.'
