Staff, past and present, outside Carter Bequest Hospital on 31 March 2015

After more than 89 years of caring for the people of Middlesbrough, Carter Bequest Hospital closed its ward doors on 31 March 2015. However, the GP surgery which resides there remains operational.

All the services provided by South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at Carter Bequest Hospital have now been relocated.

The speech and language service has moved to North Ormesby Health Village along with Middlesbrough’s Stroke Association. Redcar and Cleveland’s Stroke Association has moved to Redcar Primary Care Hospital along with the trust’s stroke rehabilitation services. The GP surgery – The Cambridge Medical Group  –  remains in the building.

The decision to close the hospital element came after a consultation led by South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group called IMProVE which was held in 2014. For more details on IMProVE click here.

The video below recalls the history of the building and fond memories of those who worked there and those who used the hospital services:
