Chiltern Wing, Sutton Hospital - South London - July 2017

Sutton Hospital was a large facility, but from a lot of the site has now fallen into derelict following successive closures of the different wings and branches. The main Sutton Hospital site has been completely demolished, but many other parts of the hospital still remain with an uncertain future.

The current site management (Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust) are slowing moving facilities over to St Helier Hospital, which is on the north side of Sutton.

The wing we explored was the Chiltern Wing, a unit specialising in Mental health treatment.

The chiltern wing was initially closed for 6 months in August 2009 due to the discovery of legionella bacteria in water systems. However it seems it was never re-opened.
