Geschiedenis

Norfolk Quarter Sessions in 1808 declared their intention to build a 'lunatic asylum' for the County following an Act of Parliament for the same year. The asylum was duly completed in 1814 when it received its first patients. In 1915 the hospital was used by the War Office as a War Hospital. Patients of the Asylum were moved to other asylums in the region and county patients were admitted to the Norwich City Asylum. The Medical Superintendent became Officer Commanding the Hospital until 1919 when control of the hospital reverted to the control of a Committee of Visitors. By 1920 the Asylum was called the Norfolk Mental Hospital and the name changed to St Andrew's Hospital in 1923. Following the National Health Service Act, 1946, the hospital passed from the county to central government control and became administered by the East Anglian Region, Group 7 Hospital Management Committee. Control passed to the Norfolk Area Health Authority in 1974 following the National Health Service Reorganisation Act, 1973. The Hospital closed in 1998 and the premises were converted in to housing.
