My first report, Ive been urbexin a while now but only just got a dslr camera as the wife has upgraded :)
So this is my first attempt any hint and tips greatly appreciated.

The explore with my fella urbexer...the wife. Entry was dead easy, seca is present and patrolling every 2 hours, however no where near as professional as the well known seca at sevs.

History,
ST GEORGE’S HOSPITAL WAS CLOSED in October 2012 after a legionella bacteria was discovered on one of the wards. The hospital has a long history and it is sad that it had to close. But there is promise for the future, with assurance from Havering CGG that a new facility is to be built on site

The Hornchurch Facility was opened in 1938, at that time it was called Suttons Institution and was primarily an old people’s home. This changed during the Second World War due to the large part that Hornchurch Airfield, which was situated right next door to the Suttons Institution, played in the war and from 1939 until 1945 the Institution was used to house R.A.F. Hornchurch airman. In 1948 the site was taken over by the ministry of health and was officially made a hospital and renamed St George’s Hospital

The site has often faced closure, in 2005 a consolation was launched on whether to refurbish, redevelop or close the hospital. These plans were only put on hold after a campaign led by, then Hornchurch MP, James Brokenshire. In 2007 the then head of nursing at the hospital, Lynne Swiatczak, said the facilities were “not suitable for the care of adultsâ€￾ and the Havering Primary Care trust once again said that the site would require a rebuild to ensure the facilities were up to the standard that patients expected.

The most recent plans for the current buildings were for the 2 wards to be moved out of the hospital, with outpatients services remaining, but the discovery of Legionella bacteria in the hospital grounds has now left the hospital lying empty.

Toy Tiger found at the childrens ward we named him seca as I had to dodge a patrol to bring him inside from the playground

All the corridors and rooms like this reminded me of sevs
