The Visit

Arrive early in the morning with The_Raw and Bassboyjoe.
Went for the most convenient access with a nice camera to add our way.

Whilst in the basement The_Raw decided to greet some people, presumably the demolition management team, with a rather odd "Hello" and a little hide in the Shower Cubicle,


History

In 1870, a small 26-bed hospital was opened here & known as North-Eastern Hospital and Dispensary. In 1893, a new building fund began, this allowed the Hackney Road site to be expanded and new ward accommodation to be added. In 1942 it amalgamated with the Princess Elizabeth of York Hospital for Children, Shadwell to become The Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children. In 1948, the hospital became part of the newly created NHS and in 1967 was amalgamated with Great Ormond Street Hospital. In 1996 the hospital became part of The Royal Hospitals Trust, now Barts and The London NHS Trust.

In 1992, Michael Jackson was greeted by 2000 cheering fans as he landed at Haggerston Park in a helicopter with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse where he visited the children at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children.

In 1997, the services of the hospital were relocated to The Royal London Hospital, where they retain their historical identity through their current name, The Queen Elizabeth Children's Service a title granted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The hospital had one of the country's most important pathological laboratories for the investigation of child diseases.

Despite English Heritage advising the Council that proposed demolition would involve the loss of historic fabric that had potential to provide historical information on the development of healthcare in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries all but the façade of the Hospital will be swept away in order to build two six storey residential blocks which will accommodate 188 flats.
