Stamford and Rutland Hospital is an elective care hospital in Stamford, Lincolnshire administered by North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.

History[edit]

The medieval gate

The hospital was built on a site previously occupied by Greyfriars, Stamford and donated by the Marquess of Exeter. It was funded by a bequest from the will of surgeon Henry Fryer, designed by John Peter Gandy and opened in 1828.[1]

Between 1876 and 1879 the hospital was expanded with the addition of three fever ward blocks, under architect Edward Browning with input from surgeon Dr William Newman. The wards incorporated a number of features such as centralised ward interiors and glazed internal walling, and were cited as an exemplar of single-block planning for small hospitals, particular by Henry Burdett. The fever wards are Grade II listed and are a testament to how voluntary hospitals dealt with nineteenth century epidemics of contagious disease.[2]

A substantial redevelopment of the hospital was completed in July 2017, which included new imaging facilities, including a permanent MRI scanning suite, and cancer treatment facilities.[3]

Services[edit]

The hospital provides a minor injuries unit, large scale outpatient services and day-case surgery, with the largest pain management centre in the region.[4] It also has a medicine for the elderly ward with 22 intermediate care beds.[3] The trust's largest hospital, Peterborough City Hospital, provides the majority of emergency and inpatient services in the area; the two together thus provide a comprehensive suite of services in a predominantly "hot" and "cold" split.[5] It was rated "good" by the Care Quality Commission in May 2014.[6]
