Research Facts
Sylvia Burkinshaw was born at Scarborough, Yorkshire, England in 1919 and died on Sunday May 1, 2011 at the Kingston General Hospital. Only daughter of John Frederick and Margaret Burkinshaw. Following graduation as a Registered Nurse at Scarborough Hospital and as a Midwife at Queen Charlotte's Maternity Hospital London, she served as a Nursing Sister in Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service through World War II. In 1950 she returned to civilian nursing at University College Hospital, London. An International Red Cross Scholarship award enabled her to travel to Canada to continue her health care career. She worked at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto from 1956 to 1961 and at the Kingston General Hospital from 1961 until her retirement in 1984.
A pharmacopoeia, pharmacopeia, or pharmacopoea (literally, “drug-making”), in its modern technical sense, is a book containing directions for the identification of compound medicines, and published by the authority of a government or a medical or pharmaceutical society. Descriptions of preparations are called monographs. In a broader sense it is a reference work for pharmaceutical drug specifications.
Guy's Hospital is a National Health Services hospital in the borough of Southwark in central London. It is part of Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and one of the institutions that comprise the King's Health Partners, an academic health science centre. It is a large teaching hospital and is, with St Thomas' Hospital and King's College Hospital, the location of King's College London GKT School of Medical Education. The Tower Wing (formerly known as Guy's Tower) is the world's second tallest hospital building, standing at 148.65 metres (487.7 ft) with 34 floors. It is currently one of the tallest buildings in London.
The hospital dates from 1721, when it was founded by philanthropist Thomas Guy, who had made a fortune from the South Sea Bubble and as a publisher of unlicensed Bibles. It was originally established as a hospital to treat "incurables" discharged from St Thomas' Hospital. Guy had been a Governor and benefactor of St Thomas' and his fellow Governors supported his intention by granting the south-side of St Thomas' Street for a peppercorn rent for 999 years. Following his death in 1724, Thomas Guy was entombed at the hospital's chapel.
