Dickenson CROMPTON FRCS at The Queen's Hospital Birmingham

To William Sands COX is due the merit of establishing the Queens Hospital. He was a remarkable man. Born in Birmingham in 1802, educated at King Edward's School, articled to his Father (a Birmingham Surgeon), he began to study at the General Hospital and continued his studies at Guy's and St. Thomas's Hospitals in London and Paris. He returned to Birmingham in 1825, and giving up all thought of acquiring a large general practice resolved to start a School of Anatomy of his own. Sands Cox soon began his first course of "Lectures on Anatomy with Physiology and Surgical Observations" at his residence in Temple Row to a class of nineteen pupils, including Oliver Pemberton, Dickenson CROMPTON and Bell Fletcher.

He then formed plans for extending his scheme to the formation of a regular School Medicine, and in 1828 it was decided to form a School of Medicine and Surgery in Birmingham on the plan of similar institutions at Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and other large Towns. It was stated that the hospital and other medical and surgical institutions of Birmingham on the plan of similar institutions at Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and other large Towns. It was stated that the hospital and other medical and surgical institutions of Birmingham possessed advantages of clinical instruction scarcely inferior, out of the Metropolis, to any in the Kingdom.

The School was transferred to Snow Hill by Sands COX at his own expense, and was removed to Paradise Street in 1833 - the beginning of Queen's College. This second general hospital in Birmingham was founded in the year 1840 in connexion with the Birmingham School of Medicine and Surgery; a school which in 1843 became incorporated under the name of the Queen's College. It had a large acting medical and surgical staff, consisting of three physicians, three surgeons, two physicians for out patients, three surgeons for out patients, an ophthalmic surgeon and an obstetric officer.

In 1941 Queens Hospital became Birmingham Accident Hospital which closed in 1993. Building frontage was listed and incorporated into new accommodation for University Students.
