    Post St George's Hospital


    St George’s Hospital was closed in October 2012 after legionella was discovered on one of the wards.

    The Hornchurch Facility was opened in 1938, at that time it was called Suttons Institution and was primarily an old people’s home. This changed during the Second World War when the Institution was used to house R.A.F. Hornchurch airman. In 1948 the site was taken over by the ministry of health and was officially made a hospital and renamed St George’s Hospital.

    In 2005 a decision had to be made on whether to refurbish, redevelop, or close the hospital. These plans were only put on hold after a campaign was led by the local MP. In 2007 the then head of nursing at the hospital said the facilities were “not suitable for the care of adults” and the Havering Primary Care trust once again said that the site would require a rebuild to ensure the facilities were up to the standard that patients expected.

    The site now has planning permission for over 200 homes, although sections of the hospital are being retained due to their architectural merit.



    Also, anyone planning on visiting the site should be aware that there are two young German Shepherd dogs that the handlers allow to run freely in and out of the buildings.






















































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    Glorious corridor shots Rubex So glad you say that some of these buildings will be retained, I think they have been underrated they would make great apartments.

    Great to see this place again, love the bunny tile and the bike shots too
