Thank you.


The Centre was originally created in 1998 and Elizabeth named it after Mary Seacole as so few people seemed to have heard about this amazing Jamaican woman and her enormous contributions to nursing soldiers in the Crimean war.   The  focus of the Centre  is to enable the integration of a multi-ethnic philosophy into the process of nursing and midwifery recruitment, education, practice, management and research.
