    Kingsway Hospital was established as the Derby Borough Asylum in 1884, coincidentally the same year as Derby's professional football team. The building was completed in 1888 and designed by BS Jacobs of Hull in the corridor layout built around several courtyards. The Victorian part of the hospital was modernised considerably during the 20th century, the most recent in the 1990s, however this did not deter closure in 2009 during the shake up of Derby's medical provision.
    In 1997 nursing staff raised concerns about the end of life care provided to patients on the Rowsley psycho-geriatric ward at the Kingsway Hospital, Derby.The ward looked after elderly male patients with illnesses such as Dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Allegations were made that staff were deliberately starving and dehydrating patients.A Police investigation was launched in 1997, which examined the deaths of a number of elderly patients on the Rowsley ward.
