Cherry Tree Hospital, Stockport

History

Presently known as Cherry Tree Hospital, dating back to its foundation year of 1880, the site was also titled Stockport Infection Diseases Hospital up until 1948, a reference to Whitehill Sanatorium is also noted. The cost of the build was reported to be £4,645, approximately £473,000 in todays money.

Prior to 1948, the hospital was used for the isolation of patients with diseases, particularly Tuberculosis, with a separate ward being provided for Typhoid sufferers. After 1948, the level of care was widened to accommodate other illnesses and ailments.

During the early years, the wards held between ten to sixteen simple framed beds, swan-neck bed lights and a large linear table as a focal point for the ward. The striking feature being the wooden herringbone floor.

The wards were provided with earth closets which would be emptied from the exterior of the building.

Aside from the general staff, there were seven live-in staff, Matron, three nurses and three servants.
Continuing on with this year's theme of 'Year of the Hospital', following on from St Luke's, Rauceby and Ida (Cookridge) Hospital it was time to visit a site which was a little closer to home, one that had seen its fair share of visitors as of late, the place being Cherry Tree Hospital.

There was something about this place that just could not really hold my attention, maybe it was just too new and devoid of any 'historical' looking features you get with older hospitals, whatever it was, I just was not too keen on this place, but it was local and it's another one ticked off the list.
