The Whittington Hospital

Whittington Health is an outstanding provider of integrated acute and community health care to local people with services across Islington, Haringay and at The Whittington Hospital. Medical services have been delivered on the site of the Whittington Hospital in Archway since 1473, but the current hospital has its origins in the Small Pox and Vaccination Hospital built in 1848. The hospital is named after Richard "Dick" Whittington.
