    History (Stolen from @Urban Diaries)

    For many years the only Cambridge nursing home to possess an operating theatre, the Evelyn also opened its doors to medical, maternity and psychiatric patients and to residents. Following an ambitious programme of modernization and development instigated by Morland Agnew’s grandson Julian Agnew in 1974, the Evelyn decided to specialize in the care of acute medical and surgical cases – a programme for which it was well equipped, thanks to its close ties with Addenbrooke’s Hospital and with the Cambridge medical fraternity. The hospital originally was a lot smaller and only had 2 floors, however a very modern looking extension was added on top. This is why the Operating lights, corridors and rooms seem a bit miss-matched and labyrinth like.

    In 1983 it was renamed the Evelyn Hospital as a reflection of its new status. Further developments in the 1980s and 1990s allowed it to establish itself as a busy acute private hospital with a reputation for high standards of medical and nursing care. However, the problems of running a standalone hospital in the changed environment of private medical care in the twenty-first century were considerable, and in order to ensure its continuing future, the hospital was sold to the Nuffield Hospitals Group in 2003.
    Eventually the hospital out grew itself and a new complex was needed. It never was intended to be a full size hospital and this in turn was it's down fall. Eventually plans were submitted, accepted and built upon which is what now sits dominating the older section.
    July saw the New Nuffield Hospital for Cambridge open and ever since they have been moving services over to leave the older section derelict.

    Another Hospital? Really? They seem to be cropping up left right and centre at the moment. I mean as far as they go this is a pretty standard hospital, but still another to add to the bank before it gets pulled down at the end of next week! This one was very much un touched, not vandalised, in fact it didn’t look like anyone had explored it before. At first we were a little dubious of turning lights on and off as the old site surrounds the new hospital building so we were very visible to the outside world. The highlight for me had to be the Operating Theatres, complete with there own Wharton Time Clocks still ticking away. As the night closed, we tried to find the Morgue, although with no success at all, witch is a great shame! maybe someone else will find it!
