The London Fever Hospital was a voluntary hospital founded in 1802 in London with 15 beds. Originally established in Gray's Inn Road, it moved in 1815 to the west wing of the Smallpox Hospital at Battle Bridge where it had 120 beds. In 1848 after the Northern Railway bought the original site for Kings Cross station the compensation money paid enabled the charity to build a new Hospital on Kettle Field, a 4-acre site in Liverpool Road, Islington with 200 beds. In 1948, the hospital was amalgamated with the Royal Free Hospital and eventually closed in 1975.
