St Giles Hospital Nursing School

Administrative / Biographical history

St Giles Hospital was founded as Camberwell Workhouse Infirmary in 1875. In 1913 it became Camberwell Parish Infirmary. In 1929 a Local Government Act transferred the care of Poor Law hospitals to the local County Councils, who were also given responsibility for the sick in their area. London County Council took over the parish of St Giles. In 1948, when the National Health Service Act came into operation, the St Giles Hospital, (as it had become), came under the administrative control of Camberwell Hospital Management Committee, which included St Francis and Dulwich Hospitals. In 1966 St Giles Hospital joined the King's College Teaching Hospital Group. This resulted in St Giles Hospital Nursing School being merged with King's College Hospital Nursing School.
