Liverpool's Royal Infirmary: Your memories of a much-loved

Our recent feature on Liverpool's Royal Infirmary led to many of you who worked, studied or were a patient there getting in touch with your memories of the hospital.

The Royal Infirmary closed its doors on December 17, 1978 after 89 years of serving the community and remained boarded up an unoccupied for many years until, in 1995, the University of Liverpool took ownership of the grade 2 listed building and the gradual refurbishment commenced.

The Infirmary is now known as the Waterhouse Building. Most of the original wards were converted into state of the art teaching and research laboratories. The old Orthopaedic ward is now a virtual reality radiotherapy training suite and Thornton Ward houses the Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit. The old Out Patient Department and the Chapel now form the Foresight Business Conference Centre where we are hold our annual A.G.M. A part of the Brownlow Hill Group Practice occupies the front of the building.

How I loved that place.....such fond memories.....I did part of my training there in 1977

The huge marble staircases..in fact  marble was very much apparent back in the day ...were remarkable.......although its presence on some of the wards did make them resemble public conveniences Laughing  Laughing

Yeah I remember at the Northern we had a  night  porter who looked like he was an extra from a Hammer House of Horror movie.....even worse was the mortuary was in the very dark and eerie basement......I hated it if we had a body that had to be taken there as it was his job to transport the body with you...he really gave me the creeps Shocked
