    Default HOSPITAL - Midhurst

    Midhurst in Surrey was for many years the RAF chest unit. Im guessing it specalised in treating members of the RAF suffering from chest diseases, I would guess that originally it was set up for TB.

    Does anyone know when it closed? My edlest sister lived near to it about 20 years ago and it was still open then.

    Yes - I remember it was part of King Edward VII hospital on the road between Midhurst and Fernhurst. The KEVII closed around five years ago but I will see if I can find out when the RAF unit closed from a local historian friend of mine.

    According to Guyatt & Mitchell's book "Cowdray and Easebourne", Middleton Press, a link est. in 1930s with the RAF. Servicemen treated there during WWII. RAF chest unit opened in 1964, treating Air Force personnel from all over the world - some patients brought by helicopter and landing on the nearby cricket pitch. Closed March 1994, KEVII hospital closing in 2006.
