Custodial history:
The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital was founded in 1829 as the Dispensary for Children, at Ridgefield, Manchester. In 1853 a hospital was established on North Parade. In 1858 this hospital moved to Bridge Street and was called the General Hospital and Dispensary for Sick Children. This in turn was then replaced by Pendlebury Hospital in 1873 and Gartside Street Dispensary in 1868. In 1897 a convalescent home was built at St Ann's-on Sea, later part of Lytham St Anne's, Lancashire; it closed in c1970. In 1907 a new dispensary was opened alongside the out-patients department on Gartside Street. In 1923 the Hospital was granted permission to include the prefix 'Royal' in the title of the Hospital, now called the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. In 1948 the Hospital came under the authority of the Salford Hospital Management Committee, Manchester Regional Hospital Board, on the establishment of the National Health Service (NHS). From 1 April 2001 the Hospital forms part of the Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospitals NHS Trust
Transferred to Greater Manchester County Record Office in 2001
