Planned by Birkenhead County Borough Council as a smallpox hospital, but opened in 1921 as a T.B. sanatorium. It specialised in orthopaedics, treating children suffering from non-pulmonary tuberculosis; and, in the early 1950s, long-stay child patients with psychosomatic conditions, or short stay child patients with mental and physical handicaps. Rebuilt in 1982 as a private hospital called Murrayfield.

Recently famous for footballers knee operations and the Hyperbaric Chamber Suite where divers suffering from the bends can decompress. RAF Rescue helicopters are frequent visitors.

Barnston 'Dales' are the line of trees snaking away behind the buildings.
