Good afternoon,

It is one hundred and twenty years since this hospital was founded in honour of a Queen's Jubilee. Today, we unveil this wonderful statue - the creation of sculptor Basil Watson - in honour of another great Queen.‬‪‬‪

To you all - doctors, nurses, staff and patients - at the Victoria Jubilee Hospital, I extend the heartfelt good wishes of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on this, the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee. ‬‪‬

Thank you.
