Pre-convalescent. Later, also GP unit

In 1965 St Mary's Hospital opened Chepstow Lodge as a pre-convalescent hospital (an intermediate step between hospital and convalescent home).

Chepstow Lodge comprised four converted Victorian houses in Chepstow Place, backing on St Luke's Hospital, and had 36 beds.

By 1981 it had 47 beds.

In 1982 one of the wards was converted and taken over for use by the Paddington Community Hospital - the first general practitioner (GP) hospital to open in London.  Chepstow Lodge then contained 22 pre-convalescent beds and 24 GP beds.

In 1986 the Community Hospital moved to part of the vacated St Mary's Hospital (Harrow Road) site and Chepstow Lodge closed.
