Admin HistoryThe Queen Victoria Institute for District Nursing in the County Borough of Reading was founded on 5 November 1897 as a way of commemorating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Its object was to provide domiciliary nursing care for the sick poor of Reading, which it continued to do from 1897 to 1948. Under the National Health Service it provided nursing services for the Corporation of Reading on an agency basis until 1959. In that year the Institute was replaced by a new charity, the Queen Victoria Institute Fund, and all its nursing functions were passed to the Corporation.]
