Seafarers Hospital Society
Who are they?
Seafarers do not have the consistency of a 9-5 working day, their lives can be very disrupted thus meaning it is difficult for them to receive medical and dental treatment.
Best known for Dreadnought Seamen’s Hospital – a hospital ship set up in 1821 to provide medical services for seafarers. SHS continues in the modern day under the NHS at St Thomas’s Hospital now labelled the ‘Dreadnought Unit’, now an additional maritime charity that supplies safe and efficient mental, physical and wellbeing services to Seafarers right by the seafront.
