Intro

Nice new explore, would be good to see a few more pics from here! Sure we missed a lot of it! We did get into the admin/reception but needs day light to photograph/turn lights on...
Won't be there for much longer!
Hope you enjoy :)

History


A well-known and well-loved local institution, the Evelyn Nursing Home was founded in 1921 by C Morland Agnew as a consequence of his wife Evelyn having undergone an unpleasant stay in another Cambridge nursing home.

For many years the only Cambridge nursing home to possess an operating theatre, the Evelyn also opened its doors to medical, maternity and psychiatric patients and to residents. Following an ambitious programme of modernization and development instigated by Morland Agnew’s grandson Julian Agnew in 1974, the Evelyn decided to specialize in the care of acute medical and surgical cases – a programme for which it was well equipped, thanks to its close ties with Addenbrooke’s Hospital and with the Cambridge medical fraternity.

The hospital originally was a lot smaller and only had 2 floors, however a very modern looking extension was added on top. This is why the Operating lights, corridors and rooms seem a bit miss-matched and labyrinth like.

In 1983 it was renamed the Evelyn Hospital as a reflection of its new status. Further developments in the 1980s and 1990s allowed it to establish itself as a busy acute private hospital with a reputation for high standards of medical and nursing care. However, the problems of running a standalone hospital in the changed environment of private medical care in the twenty-first century were considerable, and in order to ensure its continuing future, the hospital was sold to the Nuffield Hospitals Group in 2003.

Eventually the hospital out grew itself and a new complex was needed. It never was intended to be a full size hospital and this in turn was it's down fall. Eventually plans were submitted, accepted and built upon which is what now sits dominating the older section.

July saw the New Nuffield Hospital for Cambridge open and ever since they have been moving services over to leave the older section derelict.

It will be demolished shortly and the diggers and builders are already on site. Unfortunately I don't think they will be retaining any of the buildings/sections, however hopefully I'm wrong!

I'm not overly sure if it's still there, they were supposed to be pulling it down just after we went
