Statutory Instruments

The Health Act 1970 (Section 76) Simpson’s Hospital Estate Act (Amendment) Order 2003

Simpson’s Hospital has its origins in the last Will of George Simpson dated 11th December, 1778 whereby he bequeathed the residue of his estate to Trustees in trust, “to erect, support and maintain an Hospital for the reception of such poor, decayed, blind and gouty men, as they shall think worthy of such a charity”… The charity was established by the Simpson’s Hospital Estates Act 1779 and this Statute was amended by the Simpson’s Hospital Act 1861

Simpson’s Hospital now wishes to amend their Charter by broadening its objects to include women and their powers under existing Statutes to allow Trustees to borrow monies on the security of the charity’s property for developments contemplated with the support of the Eastern Regional Health Authority
