Healthcare in Hackney

Hackney has a long tradition of healthcare from the earliest private hospitals and sanatoria to the current work of Homerton Hospital. The Red Cross has also had a well-recognised base in Dalston for many years. The museum has an extensive collection of health-related items, including a major bequest from Dr Lionel Stoll who grew up here and went on to become an early GP for the new NHS.
