Dulwich Hospital Nursing School

Administrative / Biographical history

Dulwich Hospital started life as the Champion Hill Infirmary of St Saviour's Union in 1886. In 1921 it became Southwark Hospital and in 1931, when London County Council took over the running of it, it became Dulwich Hospital. In 1948, when the National Health Service Act came into operation, the Hospital came under the administrative control of Camberwell Hospital Management Committee, which included St Giles and St Francis Hospitals. This Committee was under the South East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board. In 1964, Dulwich Hospital joined King's College Hospital Group, which resulted in the nursing schools being merged.
