Royal Victoria Hospital visited with SilverFox back in June this year.

Only my 2nd report on here so supposed i better do it properly so here comes the history...

Opened in 1846 as Folkestone Dispensary(1846-1863), then Folkestone Dispensary and Infirmary(1863-1890), then Victoria Hospital(1890-1910) and ended up with Royal Victoria Hospital until it closed in Nov 2009.

In 1973 the maternity unit was transferred to Willesborough Hospital. Following the opening of the William Harvey Hospital at Ashford, this hospital was transformed into a centre for geriatric, stroke rehabilitation, eye surgery (1980-1994) and general practitioner patients. There is a published history of the hospital: Martin Easdown, A Grand Old Lady: The History of the Royal Victoria Hospital Folkestone, 1846-1996 (1996)
