Andover War Memorial Hospital

Andover War Memorial Hospital opened in 1926 as a replacement for the town’s cottage hospital. At the time Andover was a small town of around 17,000 but it expanded rapidly in the second half of the 20th century.

The War Memorial Hospital has expanded similarly. Newer parts of the hospital provide in-patient rehabilitation, maternity services, a day surgery unit and a minor injuries unit, while a new outpatient unit opened in 2010.

The site also houses the Countess of Brecknock Hospice, which provides six in-patient beds, day care, and a base for Macmillan Nurses. 

The Minor Injuries Unit in Andover is lead by Emergency Nurse Practitioners who are experienced in treating minor injuries and illnesses. This unit is presently open from 8:30am to 7.30pm, seven days a week, and is also supported by x-ray facilities between 8.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please note there are no dental facilities.

The opening hours at Andover’s Minor Injuries Unit have been temporarily reduced to ensure a safe service at a period of insufficient numbers of appropriate staff including vacancies in the numbers of highly trained Emergency Nurse Practitioners who work in the Andover MIU and in our two Emergency Departments in Winchester and Basingstoke. The intention is to return to normal opening hours as soon as possible.
