Mile End Hospital is a community hospital in the Mile End area of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is managed by Barts Health NHS Trust.


The hospital was established as the infirmary for the local workhouse in 1859.[1] A training school for nurses was added in 1892.[1] The facility was rebuilt as the Mile End Old Town Infirmary in 1883 and then served as a military hospital during First World War.[1] After becoming Mile End Hospital in 1930, it joined the National Health Service in 1948.[1] It became the Royal London Hospital (Mile End) in 1990 but reverted to being called Mile End Hospital in 1994 and was taken under the management of Barts Health NHS Trust in 2012.[2]


The hospital provides outpatient and community based services, including diabetes, sexual health, rheumatology, radiology, and physiotherapy, as well as children's services.[3]

Some services at the hospital are also provided by Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, including cataract, glaucoma and general ophthalmology.[4]


Mile End tube station and Stepney Green tube station are both located within walking distance of the hospital, and London Buses Routes 25, 205, 309 and Night Route N205 pass the hospital on Mile End Road and Globe Road.[5]
