Reminiscences Wanted: St George's Hospital, Hornchurch

18 March 2020

Could you contribute to our investigations into this hospital building?

St George's Hospital, Hornchurch

Opened in 1938, the former St George's Hospital in Hornchurch closed its doors in 2012 and is presently being redeveloped for housing. A history of the hospital is therefore being prepared, in order to record the site and its buildings for posterity.

Do you have any recollections of St George's, either as a member of staff or a patient, that you would be willing to share?  Do you remember the requisitioning of the hospital by the RAF during the Second World War?
