Our Heritage

Over 100 years delivering medical excellence in 25a Eccleston Street, Belgravia, London

The Great War had left millions dead. But barely were the guns silenced when the killer virus struck. A threat emerged that was even more lethal than the fighting that had brutally cut down so many young men. The influenza pandemic of 1918-19 claimed the lives of between 20 and 40 million people around the world, at least three times the number killed in the war. More died in a single year than were killed in the four years of the Black Death from 1347-51.

 

Today we are proud to continue with the legacy of our predecessors fighting the epidemic of our time killing millions of people all over the world: Addiction.

Our Neighbourhood

Belgravia is an affluent district in West London, shared within the authorities of both the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Belgravia is noted for its very expensive residential properties: it is one of the wealthiest districts in the world.

Belgravia was known as Five Fields during the Middle Ages, and became a dangerous place for highwaymen and robberies. It was developed in the early 19th century by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster under the direction of Thomas Cubitt, focusing on numerous grand terraces centred on Belgrave Square and Eaton Square. Much of Belgravia, known as the Grosvenor Estate, is still owned by a family property company, the Duke of Westminster's Grosvenor Group.
