O’Donoghue Wall names to be unveiled as donations invited

The RCP will this month unveil the O’Donoghue Wall names in its Liverpool home, The Spine, and is encouraging donations to the fundraising appeal established to support its work there.

Contributions of £800 or more will be recognised with an inscription on the O'Donoghue Wall and all those who pledge to make their donations by 9 May will be invited to the unveiling and a reception at The Spine.

The appeal was launched to support the development of RCP at The Spine as beacon of excellence. At the heart of a vibrant scientific community, it will transform the RCP’s reach and facilities for fellows and members in the north and help to drive the research agenda, along with improvements in the care of individual patients and in the health of the whole population. It will allow the clinical skills component of the MRCP(UK), physician associate and other exams to be held in class-leading clinical examination suites instead of busy hospitals.

The O’Donoghue Wall (in pure copper and solid oak) is a generous gift from AHR (the building’s architects) and Overbury (the fit-out contractors) and was produced by BA Joinery at cost. Like The Spine’s exterior, it is made up of unique voronoi polygons that mimic human skin. It is home to a specially commissioned portrait of Professor Donal O’Donoghue, the RCP’s registrar, who died last year.

Gifts can be made in one lump sum or by pledging to give monthly for 12, 24, or 36 months. Donations can be made via credit/debit card here, by cheque, or standing order. Please contact the Development Team at development@rcp.ac.uk for more information.
