Eastern General Hospital, Edinburgh
Eastern General Hospital, Edinburgh
In 1928/29 Parliament, with Stanley Baldwin as Prime Minister, passed an Act which permitted Town Councils to institute Municipal Hospitals and every town hastened to convert their Poor Law Institutions in this manner. Edinburgh Council set up the Western General and the Eastern General Hospitals

The Eastern General Hospital, Edinburgh, was in Seafield Road, and used to be the main hospital for the residents of the Eastern part of the city, hence the name. Whereas the Western General is still open, this one was shut down, and the land sold off for housing. Naturally, the site is mainly empty with only the gates and a couple of lodge buildings remaining.
