    Default Hahneman hospital.

    Though I've passed this building,in Hope st. many times,I was never aware of it's use,and I can't say I've ever heard it mentioned by anyone, and it's now closed! Anyone have any info'? (sorry there's no better pic's,my batteries ran out!)

    The only time I ever visited it was when it was the Homeopathic Hospital, in the late 60's if I remember correctly.

    It's always been a Homeopathic Hospital Daveec, the name Hahneman is the name of the 'founder' of Homeopathic medicine. Sorry to see it closed down though. it did have it's place in medicine , at least for some conditions.

    Steve,

    I can't say with any certainty, but I think it was NHS.

    Yes Davec! it was NHS, Other hospitals and doctors could refer patients there for homeopathic treatments, mind you,! a lot of doctors looked on homeopathy as 'not really a true medical practice' !

    That's what I thought! I didn't know there was anything like this,in years gone by,thinking homeopathy was a fairly recent trend,much like acupuncture, and not with a specific hospital! (which seems odd,now that it's closed!)

    The hospital must have closed down sometime during the 1970's.
    I visited someone who was in the Homeopathic, must have been early to mid 70's.
    It was taken over very early 1980's and used by L'pool Faculty of Art.
