A chapel was built in in the Art Nouveau style. The rather squat tower had a flagpole arising from the centre. The windows were close to the eaves with buttresses in between decorated with Art Nouveau motifs.

The interior was decorated with green tiles, similar to those of the Paris Metro, with an abundance of water-lily ornament. Patients were given four meals a day, with rest periods before and after eating.

They were allowed a recreation hour from 6 until 7 o'clock in the evening before they went to bed at 8 o'clock. They were also expected to work or exercise for an hour and a half in the morning and two hours in the afternoon to prevent them becoming 'self-centred and lazy'. Patients confined to bed would do needlework or other types of hand work. Treatment was often sufficiently successful to enable patients to return to normal life, but the stigma attached to TB sufferers made work difficult to find.

The National Insurance Act, , made each local authority responsible for providing treatment for its TB patients. All services were transferred to the Northwood site, where an extension to the Nurses' Home had just been completed. Plans were made to build a children's wing. During the war the Hospital continued to admit patients from all over the country, and even Belgian refugees and French soldiers with TB.

After the war the Hospital had beds, all of which were used for TB patients. In the plans for the children's wing were abandoned because of a lack of money. In an actinotherapist was appointed and a Light Department established for the treatment of surgical TB i. Additional facilities were also provided for cancer patients and, two years later, a second actinotherapist joined the staff.

The main roof was retiled and the entire domestic hot water system renewed, with new boilers, calorifiers and radiators being installed. When the number of deaths in the country from cancer in was the greatest recorded, the Hospital Governors requested that the Hospital cease to specialize in the treatment of TB and become a general hospital instead, with special reference to the treatment of cancer.

A deep therapy apparatus was installed, despite the prohibitive cost of radium, and one of the wards - the East Solarium - was converted into a pathology research laboratory.

The Hospital received cancer patients from all parts of the country and throughout the Empire. As many leading authorities of the day were employed by the Hospital, it was invited by the National Radium Commission to become the principal postgraduate training centre for the study of radium therapy. It was renamed the Diagnostic Centre. As the prospect of war loomed, in the Ministry of Health compulsorily purchased 2. This land, which had been used as a vegetable garden for the Hospital, meant an additional expense as the Hospital then had to buy in supplies.

Ten huts were erected on the land to accommodate anticipated war casualties. Thirty-five of its own patients were evacuated when the Mount Vernon Hospital became the advanced base hospital for the Middlesex Hospital for up to patients. During WW2 the Hospital was one of four national sites to store radium. A well was drilled to a depth of 50 feet 15 metres for this purpose, to protect the store from air raids.

Treatment continued for cancer patients additional beds had been prepared for radiotherapy patients transferred from the Middlesex Hospital and a Radiotherapy Centre opened with six machines.

Two huts were built on the perimeter of the site to house patients with radium implants. Research work in the treatment of cancer continued throughout the war at both the central London site and at Northwood.

Two wards were allocated for patients evacuated from Moorfields Hospital. In marquees were erected in the grounds, but overnight were flattened by high winds. Fortunately only one patient had been moved in, and the experiment was not attempted again.

It was eventually bought by the Hospital in and remained in use until the s, when it was sold and demolished. Carlton Place , a housing estate, was built on the site. Commissioned officers were allocated beds in wards in the main building, while Other Ranks were in the hutted wards. It also treated some wounded French servicemen as well as German prisoners-of-war who had to be kept apart. In there was an outbreak of typhoid and, in , smallpox during which three people died.

In the Committee of Management decided to increase the salaries of the nursing staff. After the war Mount Vernon continued as a general hospital, also providing regional services in radiotherapy and plastic surgery. In it had beds, of which were EHS beds reduced to in the following year. They were joined in May by 12 more Lithuanians, and 5 more in September, as well as 8 Belgians and, later, by 2 Hungarians and 1 Latvian.
