The hospital has its origins in the Bradford Union Workhouse Infirmary which was completed in 1852.[3] During the First World War, the Bradford Board of Guardians ran the hospital as an auxiliary war hospital. Thereafter it became known as St Luke's Hospital.[4] It became the City of Bradford Municipal General Hospital in 1929 and joined the National Health Service as St. Luke's Hospital in 1948.[3]

The hospital was noted for being a pioneer in the field of chemotherapy under Professor Robert Turner and George Whyte-Watson in the 1950s.[5][6]

In 2009 a disused ward on the site was used as the fictional St Aidan's Hospital in the ITV drama, The Royal with external scenes filmed around Scarborough and Whitby in North Yorkshire.[7] One of the stars of the Royal, Natalie Anderson, was actually born at St Luke's in 1981 when the hospital had a maternity ward.[8] This and other buildings were not being used for medical practice and in 2010, were demolished due to vandalism, dry rot and asbestos.[9]
