Auxiliary Hospital
1 Montpelier Road, Ealing, W5 2QS
Medical dates:

Medical character:
1915 - 1919 ?

Convalescent (military)

In 1915, as war casualties mounted, Montpelier House, a privately run medical and surgical nursing home, became an extension of the Fourth London General Hospital.  It was fully equipped and had 23 beds (which could be increased to 30).

The Hospital was staffed by 8 nurses, and No. 75 Mount Park Road was used to accommodate them.  The wages of the domestic servants were paid by the proprietors of the nursing home.

In 1917 the Hospital was listed as having 80 beds for convalescent patients transferred from the Fourth London General Hospital.  It may be that another property - No. 3 Montpelier Road - was acquired as part of the Hospital.

Presumably the Hospital closed in 1919.

No further details have (as yet) come to light.
