Edgware General Hospital was located on Burnt Oak Broadway.

In 1838 the Hendon Board of Guardians opened a new workhouse - Redhill House - on a 20 acre site at Burnt Oak on the north side of Edgware Road. A Union School was built in 1859 to the northwest of the workhouse for 150 pauper children and, in 1865, an infirmary was erected on adjacent land (in 1890 padded cells were added for lunatic inmates).

In 1924, rather than an extension being added to the Redhill infirmary, work began on a new building behind the School. The Hendon Union Infirmary opened in 1927 with 175 beds. It was one of the last workhouse infirmaries to be built.

The central administrative block had 2-storey pavilion ward blocks on either side. Other buildings housed a receiving ward, an operating theatre, a Nurses’ Home and a mortuary. There was also a boiler house and a gate lodge.

In 1930 Middlesex County Council took over administration of the workhouse, which became the Redhill Public Assistance Institution; its infirmary was renamed Redhill Hospital. The former Union School became Redhill Lodge, a men’s home. In 1931 the Hospital was renamed the Redhill County Hospital.

Between 1936 and 1938 the Hospital was greatly extended, with a 60-bed maternity unit and a 329-bed medical block being added. It was also responsible for the administration of the Bushey Maternity Hospital, which opened in 1938.

In 1948 it joined the NHS and was renamed Edgware General Hospital, coming under the control of the Hendon Group Hospital Management Committee. This Group also included the Bushey Maternity Hospital, Hendon District Hospital, Colindale Hospital, Hendon Isolation Hospital, Roxbourne Hospital, Oxhey Grove, Stanmore Cottage Hospital, Harrow Chest Clinic and Edgware Chest Clinic (all of which have now closed).

By 1954 Edgware General Hospital had 651 beds.

In 1964 it had 718 beds but, because of a nursing staff shortage, 86 (11%) had to be closed. In the same year a new extension for the Out-Patients department opened, which contained nine consulting rooms, pathology laboratories and a minor operations suite. There was also a self-contained ophthalmic unit with 26 beds and an eye casualty department. Work began on five new operating theatres with a recovery ward and a plaster room. In 1965 a new chapel was built at the cost of £8000 and a Library initiated, which was based in the former Board Room.

By 1982 the Hospital had 600 beds, dealing mainly with acute patients.

In 1994 a public consultation was held concerning the future of the Hospital. Despite public resistance, it closed in 1997.row to build 289 homes.

Burnt Oak

Burnt Oak tube station is a London Underground station in on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Edgware and Colindale stations.

The name Burnt Oak was first used in 1754 and from then until the 1850s referred to no more than a field on the eastern side of the Edgware Road (Watling Street). Nor is there evidence that the name implies anything except that the field had once contained a burnt oak tree.

In May 1844 Burnt Oak field was sold to a Mr Essex, and by the 1860s plans were in place to build three residential streets: North Street, East Street, and South Street. The application of the field name to the area seems to have followed from this new estate and was in use by the end of the 19th century.

However, the area was generally known as Red Hill until the opening of Burnt Oak tube station.

The station was designed by architect Stanley Heaps and opened as Burnt Oak (Watling) on the 27 October 1924, two months after the extension of the Hampstead & Highgate Line from Hendon Central to Edgware had opened. The station was originally provided with a temporary structure before the final ticket office building was constructed in 1925. The suffix was dropped from the name about 1950.
