Many people visiting, or working in the hospital today, have little knowledge of its humble beginnings. The Northern General Hospital, Sheffield began life over 120 years ago and has a fascinating history having started life as the Fir Vale Workhouse in the days prior to free medical care for all. The Workhouse also included the Smilter Lane and Herries Road Children's Homes.
