    Hi all, this is my second go at doing a report, first one didnt go to well but with abit of advice i think this should hopefully come out better.

    I know the hospital has been reported a few times, but i did the photos before i had even visited the site, so thought id just stick them up and give myself another excuse to have a go at doing a report...

    Little bit of history as i feel a lot has been written about it already...
    'This was built in 1888 originally as a
    hospital for Infectious Diseases _
    scarlet fever,diphtheria,typhoid,
    tuberculosis and,later,polio.During
    World War 1, injured soldiers who had
    been sent home were housed in two
    pavilions built on the East side of
    Benfield Road.Originally temporary,
    they were not demolished until about
    7yrs ago.The hospital,now contracted
    to 192 beds,has Eye,Ear,Nose and
    Throat departments.It is expected to
    be used only for looking after old
    people in future,with operations being
    carried out at the Royal Victoria
    Infirmary in Newcastle which has also
    the nearest Accident Department.'

    I believe since that statement above it went under a few different modernisation's , and now there isn't much of it left with only the very west side of it that hasn't yet been demolished.

    Unfortunately i don't have a picture of the external as i didn't think about it at the time i went for a visit, i was more interested in the inside.
