Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Gordon Hospital has undergone a series of name changes since its opening in June 1884. Originally named the Western Hospital for Fistula, Piles and Other Diseases of the Rectum in 1884, it changed its name to the Gordon Hospital for Fistula, Piles and Other Diseases of the Rectum in 1886, Gordon Hospital for Rectal Diseases in 1911, and the Gordon Hospital for Diseases of the Rectum and Colon in 1939. It finally became the Gordon Hospital in 1941.

The hospital opened in a house in Vauxhall Bridge Road but moved to a purpose-built site, in the same road, in 1899. It was rebuilt in 1947.

In 1948 the hospital merged with the Westminster Hospital as a result of the changes instituted by the new National Health Service. It was subsequently part of the South West Metropolitan Region. In 1974 the Westminster group formed part of the North West Thames Regional Health Authority and the South (Teaching) Health District. In 1982 it became part of the Riverside District Health Authority.

On 1st April 1999 the Gordon Hospital became part of Brent, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust, formed from North West London Mental Health NHS Trust, half of Riverside Mental Health NHS Trust and the mental health component of Parkside Health NHS Trust.
