Celebrating 100 years

This month the South London and Maudsley are celebrating Maudsley Hospital which opened to the public 100 years ago today.

The hospital had first been requisitioned by the War Office before its completion in 1915 to deal with the military casualties of the First World War. Their organisation has changed in many ways over the last century, but thanks to their staff and partners, Henry Maudsley’s vision, of a hospital in an urban centre where mental healthcare, teaching and research would come together, endures.

A vision we intend to continue and develop when the Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People opens next year.
