A new Stoke-upon-Trent Poor Law Parish was formed on 30th April 1836, governed by an elected Board of 24 Guardians. The new Union had had a population of 37,220 in the 1831 census, and a poor-relief expenditure of 11,550 for the period 1833-5. The existing parish workhouse was taken over by the new administration.

It was found that many of the people who sought admission were in a bad state of health, and from that cause unable to work to keep themselves; and then again, many of the inmates, being aged and infirm, sickness was a common occurrence with them; so it was found necessary to have a separate place for dealing with this particular branch of the Guardians' work. In 1842, east of the standing structure was built the Parish Hospital.

This was arranged to hold about 80 patients, and was found a very valuable addition to the Workhouse.
