Cardiff City Mental Hospital was opened in 1908 by Cardiff County Borough Council in buildings by George Oatley and W.J. Skinner. In 1915, the hospital was requisitioned to become the Welsh Metropolitan War Hospital. It returned to psychiatric use in 1919 but was requisitioned again in 1940, this time as the Whitchurch Emergency Hospital, which closed in 1945. In 1948 the hospital was re-named Whitchurch Hospital and was placed in the care of the Whitchurch and Ely Hospital Management Committee. From 1974 Whitchurch Hospital became the centre of the psychiatric services of South Glamorgan Health Authority and is still open today (2014)
