The hospital on Chawton Park Road was founded in 1901 for the returning Boer war wounded. After this and under the patronage of William Treloar, Lord Mayor of London, it became what was known as “the little cripples hospital” treating children orthopaedically disabled by TB. More recently it served as a regional orthopaedic hospital gaining an international reputation. Sadly this function has now moved to Basingstoke. However the wonderful spirit of this hospital lives on today to serve the local community and to remain a centre of excellence in its field. It functions as a multidisciplinary complex which interrelates wonderfully within itself and with the local community which it serves.
Included there are:
In 2001 a £1.4 million new wing was opened; housing Outpatients, X-ray and Physiotherapy in beautiful lilac and very bright blue. This confirmed the community hospital as a viable entity and allowed for the unfortunate demolition of the old Lord Mayor Treloar Hospital, and its replacement with a housing estate. The community hospital is now is now well placed to face the uncertainties of the 21st century.
In 2005 the worsening financial position of the local Primary Care Trust forced the closure of Inwood ward. Massive local opposition, public meetings and a lot of behind the scenes pressure has allowed the ward to partially reopen in Oct 2006.
