Newcastle (East) Chest Clinic


Newcastle Tuberculosis Dispensary was established in February 1913, following the National Insurance Act of 1911. The Act made all forms of tuberculosis notifiable diseases, and required local authorities to provide chest clinics. In December 1914, the Dispensary was located at Ridley Villas, 91 New Bridge Street, by the junction with Falconer Street. In c.1952 it was renamed "Newcastle Chest Clinic (East)" following the opening of a West clinic in Walkergate. By the 1960s, Ridley Villas was being used as a general NHS medical unit, which closed in c.1972.
