In the first years, there were only ten beds (later increased to 20). Unlike today, the patients were almost all very local, from the teeming slums of nearby Clerkenwell, Holborn and St. Pancras. Initially the hospital was regarded as a suspicious innovation by many people, and few patients came, b...
