Yes, the Queen Victoria Hospital at East Grinstead has a well-established Burns Unit. But it is also world famous for plastic and reconstructive surgery.

The picture (painting) shows Archibald McIndoe (later Sir Archibald) operating there in 1944. The bronze monument (and a very moving one it is, too) was unveiled in 2014. See also the "Guinea Pig Club".

Sad to relate that McIndoe died young (at 59 years) in 1960. He was born in New Zealand, by the way.
