When large numbers of patients are to be transferred from Guy's Hospital to base hospitals in the country, they are transported by Green Line coach ambulance. Here we see a female patient being loaded onto such a vehicle outside Guy's Hospital in London. The nursing sister has the patient's MPC 47 form, which contains her personal details and details of her treatment so far, and will provide the basis for any future treatment. The medical superintendent supervises the evacuation. In the background, rubble can be seen, highlighting the fact that Guy's Hospital had been affected by air raids.
