The Cambridge Military hospital was named after Prince George. It was first opened on the 18th July 1879.

During the First World War, this hospital acted as the first base hospital to receive those who were injured. Another little fact is that it was the first place where plastic surgery took place in Britain.

After both the first and second world war, there was a decline in importance of military commitments, so civilians started to get admitted to the hospital.
