A Rich History in Healthcare

The Birth of The Buckinghamshire Hospital

In response to the cholera epidemic, a group of prominent men, led by Sir Harry Verney of Claydon House, raised money to buy and convert a country house just outside the town on Buckingham Road.

Planning the expansion of The Buckinghamshire Hospital

By 1850 the hospital was too small and a building committee under Mr George Carrington of Missenden Abbey was set up.

Plans are drawn and fundraising began

Sir Harry led the appeal and his sister-in-law, Florence Nightingale, to help raise funds. Florence had recently returned from the Crimean war, and was helping to reform British Army medical services.

The Rothschild family brings innovation

When the Rothschild family came to Aylesbury, they assisted with the hospital’s expansion plans, including an innovative x-ray department, and a complete new third floor to accommodate the maternity ward.

Queen Victoria gives the Hospital Royal Assent

After treating people from all walks of life, including Royalty, Queen Victoria gave us her royal assent and the hospital was renamed as The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital.

No longer the Main Hospital for the town of Aylesbury

The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital was the main hospital for the town of Aylesbury all the way through to 1948 when Stoke Mandeville Hospital was expanded and took over that role. It then became a maternity hospital.

The expansion becomes a full rebuild

Plans for expansion were changed to a complete rebuild. In April 1861, the foundation stone of the new Infirmary was laid by Lady Verney.

The Hospital is formally open to the public

In June 1862, it was formally opened, and began treating people from all walks of life. Further expansions ensued, namely a rear expansion.

The Royal Bucks Becomes a Grade II listed building

In 1992 the hospital gained its status as a Grade II listed building, following the efforts of the Aylesbury Old Town Residents Association.

The empty building is sold by the NHS

The hospital stood empty for a few years until 1994 when it was sold by the NHS and became a private hospital specialising in Spinal Injuries and Rehabilitation.

Extensive modernisation of the facilities

During this time, the Hospital was extensively modernised, with new facilities added. However, the hospital closed in 2012.

A New Life with the
 Affinity Group

The Hospital was purchased by the Affinity Group in March 2013, and continues to provide excellent Rehabilitation care for Spinal Cord and Neurological injuries.

Now a Part of The Buckinghamshire Group

With The Kings Lodge, Affinity Training and Home Care Angels as part of the business portfolio alongside a complete refurbishment, we offer the most intensive rehabilitation available in the market today.
