New End Hospital
Until the outbreak of World War I, New End Hospital's patients included the unemployed, homeless, and unmarried mothers, and their children. It also had an infirmary for the treatment of psychiatric patients. During the World War I New End Hospital was primarily used for the treatment of wounded and shell-shocked soldiers.
The hospital was taken over by the London County Council in 1930, and became well known as a centre for endocrinology. It remained in use until 1986, when it was sold, and the proceeds used to fund the redevelopment of Queen Mary's Maternity Home.
