Administrative / biographical background:

The Fleming Memorial Hospital began its life in 1863 as the Children's Hospital, Hanover Square, Newcastle.


In 1886, John Fleming, a Newcastle Solicitor gave £25,000 to build a new hospital for sick children in memory of his wife, who had died in 1882.


The Fleming Memorial Hospital at Moor Edge was officially opened by Lord Armstrong on 26 September 1888.


It was closed in 1988 when the work of the hospital was transferred to the Fleming Wing of the Royal Victoria Infirmary.
