St Pancras Hospital is part of the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust in the St Pancras/Somers Town area of central London, near Camden Town. The hospital specialises in geriatric and psychiatric medicine.
The hospital was formerly the St Pancras Workhouse. The Workhouse dates back to before 1777 and the hospital is partly housed in the original buildings. From 1951 to 1998 some of its buildings (the former maternity wards) were occupied by the London Hospital for Tropical Diseases. The remainder was managed by University College Hospital as general wards. The chaplaincy is run from St Pancras Old Church.
In January 1999 an independent report revealed abuse at Beach House, one of the geriatric units of the hospital, where nurses hit and tied up elderly mentally ill patients, and racially intimidated colleagues who threatened to report them.
