    Walkergate Hospital was built in 1888 originally as a hospital for Infectious Diseases. These could be anything from Scarlet Fever to Diptheria, Typhoid to Tuberculosis and later on Polio. During World War 1, injured soldiers that were sent home were housed in two pavilions that were constructed on the East side of the site. Built only as a temporary measure, they were still in use until their demolition in 1979. In the Second World War, the hospital was bombed By 1986, the hospital was contracted to 192, had an ENT Department , Xray Department and a small Theatre. In the latter years, the hospital was mainly used for elderly care and rehabilitation, with major operations being carried out in the RVI, the main hospital in Newcastle. Various parts of the hospital closed down over the years and in March 2011, it was announced that the two remaining wards would shut for the final time in Summer 2011.
