TitleSheffield No 3 Hospital Management Committee
AdminHistoryConstituted at the establishment of the National Health Service (NHS) under the National Health Service Act, 1946, Sheffield No 3 Hospital Management Committee (HMC) was one of thirty HMCs of the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board, four of which covered Sheffield itself.

Sheffield No 3 HMC had its headquarters at Lodge Moor Hospital. It was responsible for the administration of a number of Sheffield hospitals and clinics for patients with infectious diseases and tuberculosis which prior to 1948 had been managed by Sheffield Corporation (later City) through the Hospitals Sub-committee of the Health Committee.

As from 1 April 1964 the committee was enlarged as Sheffield No 3 and No 4 HMCs were integrated as Sheffield No 3 HMC. Sheffield No 4 HMC had only managed one establishment, the Sheffield National Centre for Radiotherapy.

The hospitals and clinics managed were: King Edward VII Hospital, Sheffield; Lodge Moor Hospital, Sheffield; Winter Street Hospital; Crimicar (Lane) Sanatorium; Commonside TB Sanatorium (closed 1956); Dronfield Infectious Diseases Hospital (until its transfer to Chesterfield HMC in Aug 1955); Grenoside Institution; Grenoside Infectious Diseases Hospital; Hallwood Smallpox Hospital, Grenoside; Bakewell and District War Memorial Cottage Hospital; Newholme Hospital (formerly County Welfare Establishment) in Baslow Road, Bakewell; Haddon Infectious Diseases Hospital; Ash House Hospital School, Dore [for children with rheumatic heart conditions] (until Oct 1959 when control was transferred to Sheffield Corporation); the Mass Radiography Centre and Unit, Ellin Street, Sheffield; TB dispensaries (later Chest Clinics) in Queen's Road (Sheffield), Dinnington and Wadsley Bridge; and from 1964 the Sheffield National Centre for Radiotherapy which was superseded in 1971 by the new Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield.

Following reorganisation of the National Health Service in 1974, HMCs were abolished on 31 March 1974. New Area Health Authorities, responsible to new Regional Health Authorities, took over the functions and responsibilities of the HMCs as well as the public health functions of local authorities. Sheffield Area Health Authority and Trent Regional Health Authority were legally established as from 1 April 1974.
