In 1948 it became part of the National Health Service under the control of the North East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board and Tottenham Hospital Management Committee. The hospital was renamed Saint Ann's General Hospital in 1949 or 1950. From 1982 it was the responsibility of Haringey Health Authority. It is now part of the Haringey NHS services.
