However, by the turn of the century, it was suggested that St George’s should be rebuilt yet again, but away from its present site. Unfortunately, the intervention of two world wars put pay to any further development plans at this time, but at the end of the 1940s the debate began again in earnest. In 1948, the National Health Service was introduced, and plans for a new site for St George’s at The Grove Fever and Fountain Hospitals at Tooting were eventually agreed upon. In 1954, the Grove Hospital became part of St George’s, and clinical teaching started in Tooting.
