TQ0990 : Northwood-Pinner Cottage Hospital

Northwood-Pinner Cottage Hospital
Northwood-Pinner Cottage Hospital
Located on the A404 Pinner Road in Northwood Hills. Here we see an ambulance in attendance.

The hospital was one of a number built as a memorial to The Great War (World War I) by public subscription and opened in 1924. It is currently under threat of closure. Public outcry about the way in which the proposed closure of this hospital was approached has generated a rethink about its future. In 2007 it seems to have been agreed that the hospital should close and be replaced by a modern facility that respects its status as a war memorial. Quite what that means is a moot point.

I note that another photo of this subject calls it Ruislip Northwood Cottage Hospital. This may well have been its name at the time of that photo - NHS trust boundary changes and all that.
