St Francis Hospital Nursing School

Administrative / Biographical history

Constance Road Workhouse, East Dulwich was built for the Camberwell Board of Guardians. The Workhouse was opened in 1895, three years after the foundation stone was laid, with 898 inmates. It became the Constance Road Infirmary / Institution and specialised in caring for the deserving poor, mentally ill and handicapped people, the elderly and unmarried mothers. The Infirmary came under he control of the London County Council in 1930, and in 1936 was renamed St Francis Hospital. In 1948, when the National Health Service Act came into operation, the St Francis Hospital came under the administrative control of Camberwell Hospital Management Committee, which included St Giles and Dulwich Hospitals. In 1966 St Francis Hospital joined the King's College Teaching Hospital Group. This resulted in St Francis Hospital Nursing School being merged with King's College Hospital Nursing School. Following the re-organisation of the NHS, St Francis became part of Camberwell Health Authority in 1974. It became Dulwich Hospital North Wing in 1984, closing in 1991. The buildings were demolished in 1993.
