Notes NOTES: In 1924 Adams Holden & Pearson carried out alterations to this, the original Westminster Hospital of 1834 designed by H. W. Inwood. The building was demolished in 1950 after the hospital transferred to a new complex on Marsham Street, also designed by Adams Holden & Pearson. The Queen Elizabeth II Conference was erected on this site in 1981-1986.
