On Wednesday 12 September, a group of St George's alumni who graduated in 1958 reconnected with each other and their peers from across the United Hospitals at a reunion at King's College London.

The group, many of whom were meeting for the first time in 60 years, was comprised of alumni from St George's, King's College and Westminster Hospital Medical School (now part of Imperial College London). During the 1950s and 1960s, students from all three universities did a portion of their course at King's College's campus on The Strand.

The gathering was organised by King's College alumnus John Ashton, who had the idea after revisiting King's earlier in the year. 28 graduates of the medical schools gathered for lunch to reminisce about their times at university and their experiences since.

St George's alumna Pamela Rubin said: "I enjoyed my time at university, getting to know people from all three medical schools.  Some friends have been made for life but it was a thrill to meet others again after sixty years. We came together with warmth and affection to share our unique memories, laugh about things that only we remember and to tell each other about our successful careers."
