    Rambling site spread over a large area now replaced by the new Peterborough City Hospital. Easyish access despite the ever vigilant (!) 24/7 onsite security

    Peterborough District Hospital in the United Kingdom was the acute general district hospital serving the city of Peterborough and north Cambridgeshire, areas of east Northamptonshire and Rutland. Located on Thorpe Road and West Town, it was decommissioned in 2010, with services transferring to the new Peterborough City Hospital.

    Established in 1993, Peterborough Hospitals NHS Trust comprised two hospitals, Peterborough District Hospital and Edith Cavell HospitalA £300 million health investment plan has seen the transfer of the city's two hospitals to a single site on the grounds of the existing Edith Cavell Hospital in Bretton Gate from 15 November 2010, by building a modern, flexible facility more suited to modern healthcare. The maternity unit also closed and moved into a new dedicated women and children’s unit within the new hospital. The name Peterborough City Hospital was chosen by public competition in 2008 and, together with the adjacent mental health unit, known as the New Gloucester Unit, now forms the Edith Cavell Healthcare Campus.

    Planning permission was granted for an integrated care centre on the site of the former Fenland Wing in 2006 and the City Care Centre opened on 1 July 2009 The remainder of the site—to be known as the Hospital Quarter—is proposed for redevelopment.[
