Florence Nightingale (1820 -1910)

A national heroine even in her own lifetime, Florence Nightingale was much more than a pioneer of the modern profession of nursing. She is also renowned for being a scholar, statistician, theorist and social reformer.

In Derby, her advice to Dr Wiliam Ogle, who was in charge at the DRI in 1860, led to a complete rebuild of the hospital, which reopened in 1869 with a new wing named after her.

Several statues also exist in the city - outside the former Derbyshire Royal Infirmary (DRI) site in London Road, one in St Peter's Street above the shops at the junction of East Street and one above the entrance to the former Nightingale Maternity Home in Trinity Street.


The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership is the private sector-led partnership promoting economic growth, jobs and business start-ups in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. It’s invested £1.65million from its Local Growth Fund allocation in a Derby City Council city centre improvement scheme, which includes the Made in Derby project.
