London Hospitals: 1914 & 2014

After the scale of casualties in the First World War became clear, many hospitals were taken over by the military, with anything from a single ward to the entire building used to treat injured soldiers. Many of these hospitals returned to civilian use after the war, and are still operational today.

This interactive map shows the hospitals in London that treated injured soldiers in the First World War, and which are still in use a century later. Scroll through to read about the history of these sites and how they were used in the War.

If you have any stories about the history of your hospital, or would like to add any information to the map, please contact us.

    Interesting that there is no entry for either Moorfields Eye Hospital or the Royal London Hospitals . . . both would have treated service personel during/after the First World War.
