QUEEN CHARLOTTES HOSPITAL

DESCRIPTION + /

Queen Charlotte's Hospital, Goldhawk Road, Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith was built in 1929-1930 replacing its Marylebone Road site where it had moved to in 1813 (see HOB UID 1077340). The hospital had its origins as the General Lying-In Hospital established in 1739 making it the earliest lying-in hospital in the British Isles. Initially, the hospital at Goldhawk Road was a 30-bed isolation hospital for research and treatment of puerperal fever.
Queen Charlotte’s Hospital was designed by E. Stanley Hall and Eaton and Robertson.
In 1950 the Hospital had 156 beds and 142 cots and, by 1951, 165 beds and 151 cots.

In 1988, the hospital merged with the Chelsea Hospital for Women, and renamed Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital. At the end of 2000 the hospital moved to new premises built on the Hammersmith Hospital campus on the corner of Du Cane Road and Artillery Lane.

Apart from the Administration Block by 2007 the buildings have been demolished and the site redeveloped with apartments.
