Administrative History:
  • The North East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board was one of the original 14 Hospital Boards and 35 Teaching Hospital Boards established in 1948. It reported directly to the Ministry of Health and was responsible for health services in north east London and Essex. In 1974 a reorganisation of the National Health Service resulted in Regional Hospital Boards being replaced by Regional Health Authorities and the North East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board was replaced by the North East Thames Regional Health Authority. The new Regional Health Authorities reported to the Department of Health and Social Security and ultimately parliament.
