The Former Queen Street Dispensary, Wolverhampton

Predecessor to the South Staffordshire General Hospital.

Continuing on a bit of a theme, yesterday we were at the former Royal Hospital. Reference was made there to this building, from which Wolverhampton’s medical needs had been provided up until then. The rather grander replacement came about because a local businessman, Mr George Briscoe, wanted to ensure medical treatment was available to those less fortunate than himself. The Queen Street Dispensary was therefore replaced

The Wolverhampton history website has an undated image of this building. Of particular interest is the fact that the building has clearly been altered. Where the two side doors are now were originally windows, and the two storey sides on the extremes of the building were originally single storey. Looking at the building today, you would never know.
