Endell Street Military Hospital was a First World War military hospital located on Endell Street in Covent Garden, central London. This was the only hospital entirely staffed by suffragists (women who supported the introduction of votes for women). The hospital was established during the First World War in May 1915 by Doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson. Both women were former members of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), a militant organisation that campaigned for women's suffrage in the early twentieth century. The hospital was run under the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) of the British Army. In 1917, Murray and Anderson each received the CBE for their work in the hospital. In October 1919, Endell Street received orders to evacuate and close the hospital. Endell Street Military Hospital closed its door in December 1919.
