Oldchurch Hospital was a hospital in Greater London, United Kingdom, located in Romford in the London Borough of Havering and part of the Barking, Havering and Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust.


The hospital has its origins in the infirmary built to support the Romford Union Workhouse in 1893.[1][2] It served as a military hospital during the First World War and became the Oldchurch County Hospital in 1929.[1] It joined the National Health Service in 1948 but closed in December 2006 with functions moved to the new, state of the art Queen's Hospital, located nearby[3] and to King George Hospital in Chadwell Heath.[1]
