Eccles and Patricroft Hospital

  1. Type


  2. History

    The Eccles and Patricroft Dispensary was set up in 1877 and run from rooms in Byron Street, Eccles.
    In 1885 a hospital was built (in Cromwell Road, Eccles) and the dispensary changed its name to Eccles and Patricroft Hospital.

    The hospital came under the administration of the West Manchester Hospital Management Committee in 1948 as a result of the formation of the National Health Service (NHS).

    In 1974 the hospital came within the area of Salford Area Health Authority (Teaching), subsequently Salford District Health Authority and Salford Health Authority. The hospital was administered from Hope Hospital, Salford in 1980, and from Ladywell Hospital, Salford in 1984.

    The hospital closed in June 1985.
