    History (Wiki): Credit Urban_T

    The Hornchurch facility was opened in 1938 as an old people’s home,
    called Suttons Institution, but soon played a key role in the Battle
    of Britain – housing RAF airmen during the Second World War.

    In 1948 the Sutton’s Lane building was renamed St George’s and turned into a hospital.

    The future of the site has been a live issue since at least 2005, when
    a consultation was launched on whether to refurbish, redevelop or close the hospital.

    The number of patients being admitted fell that year and bosses considered
    closing one of the hospital’s four wards.

    A campaign, led by the then Hornchurch MP James Brokenshire, was organised
    to halt the closure of St George’s. The consultation was put on hold while
    the government altered health policy.

    In 2007, the then head of nursing at the hospital, Lynne Swiatczak,
    said that the facilities were “not suitable for the care of adults†– and
    Havering Primary Care Trust clarified that only a rebuild would ensure that
    the facilities would remain up to the standard that patients expect.

    Could do with the Wiki links taking out of the very short history you"ve nicked mate & a few more pics wouldn"t go amiss :thumb
    Good first report

    It"s a nice view from the tower isn"t it? well until angry Secca comes stomping down the road lol]

    If you wanna go & introduce yourself in the New members section it"d probably be worth your while

    Got off to a good start.

    You can edit the post within 24 hours, just cut & paste someone elses history (with credit obviously)

    I"d wanted that corridor since i first saw pics of it but didn"t expect to have to run the gauntlet of windows without getting spotted by Secca That"s an excessive amount of windows by anyone standards. The double glazing rep must have been very persuasive lol

    Good call, history edited :)

    Yea agreed it is an obscene amount of windows in that corridor, and it just keeps going and going. When we reached the end, we looked back and Secca walked straight through the middle missing us by a gnats hair... so we was fairly fortunate their.

    Haha, never thought about that... that would of been one hell of a quote for all that, someone got a nice bonus!

    Pity about the Morgue the "Bastards" it"s like my local Hospital next door to houses and it"s trashed, so much for Secca. Slayaaaa was taking pics of one of them as he walked around us lol
