    Default PDH Hospital (2013)


    History

    Peterborough District Hospital was the acute district general hospital serving the city of Peterborough and north Cambridgeshire, east Northamptonshire and Rutland in the United Kingdom. Located in West Town, Peterborough, the hospital was decommissioned in 2010 and finally demolished in 2015.

    The Memorial Hospital was opened by Field Marshal Sir William Robertson in 1928, as a living memorial to those of the city and the 6th Northamptonshire Regiment who died in the first world war. It was transferred to the newly formed National Health Service in 1948, coming under No. 12 Group (Peterborough and Stamford) Hospital Management Committee of the East Anglian Regional Hospitals Board. Also transferred were Thorpe Hall (maternity 1943–1970), The Gables (maternity 1947–1970), the Smallpox Hospital (1884–1970), Isolation Hospital (1901–1981), and St. John's Close (mentally ill c.1930–1971). The neo-Georgian hospital (latterly the Memorial Wing) was subsequently enlarged by the massive addition of Peterborough District Hospital, built in continuous phases between 1960 and 1968 and including, from 1970, Peterborough Maternity Unit.

    Under the provisions of the National Health Service Reorganisation Act 1973, Peterborough District Hospital came under the control of Peterborough Health Authority, subordinate to Cambridgeshire Area Health Authority, which was in turn subordinate to the East Anglian Regional Health Authority. Following the passage of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990, Peterborough Hospitals NHS Trust was established in 1993. Initially comprising Peterborough District Hospital and Edith Cavell Hospital, Stamford and Rutland Hospital in south Lincolnshire joined in 2002. One of the country's top performing NHS acute trusts,In 2004, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust became one of the first ten NHS foundation trusts in England created under the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003.
