Lost hospitals of London

If a London hospital played a part in your ancestor's life, or death, you may find it's one of the many that have closed since the National Health Service came into being in 1948. Lost hospitals of London provides an alphabetical list of hospitals with a potted history for each, much the same for London hospitals as Peter Higgenbotham has done for workhouses.

There's also a timely section on military auxiliary hospitals of WW1
A new book, Hospitals of London by Veronika and Fred Chambers with Rob Higgins is due to appear next month.
