    Default St. Ann's Hospital Morgue, London - August 2016


    Having heard about this i just had to go and have a look, I said to my other half about going shopping, she said Milton Keynes, i replied no how about London with a smile on my face. She sat in the car whilst i popped in for half hour. After getting inside i realised my tripod had broke so had to take the photos hand held.

    History
    In 1890 a suitable 19-acre site for a new fever hospital had been identified in Tottenham by the Metropolitan Asylums Board (MAB). It was to have been the last of a series to be built for the Board, covering the geographical points of London.

    Two years later, however, a huge outbreak of scarlet fever occurred in London and the existing MAB fever hospitals were unable to cope, despite the erection of temporary huts in their grounds, and patients had to be turned away. The Local Government Board relented and agreed to a new fever hospital being built on the Tottenham site, which was bought in August 1892.

    During WW1 it became Base Hospital No. 29for the American Expeditionary Force. The Hospital was decommissioned in March 1919. During the period of its occupancy, some 3,976 patients were treated - 2,351 surgically and 1,625 medically.

    In 1951 it was renamed St Ann's General Hospital. It had 756 beds and became a general hospital, also treating patients with chest disorders and infectious diseases.

    In 1982, following another reorganisation of the NHS, it was transferred to the control of the Haringey District Health Authority, part of the Enfield and Haringey Area Health Authority.

    In 1984 the Hospital had 320 beds for acute, infectious disease and chest patients.

    By 1993 there were 246 beds.

    In April 1994, with the introduction of the Hospital Trust system, it came under the administration of the Haringey Healthcare NHS Trust.

    August 2012, A variety of medical services are located at the Hospital, which now has 386 beds. Mental health in-patient and day care services are provided by the Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust.
