BR Bridewell Hospital
Date Range: 1556 -

Originally built as a palace for Henry VIII in New Bridge Street, by 1556 Bridewell had become a house of correction for petty offenders, vagrants and immoral persons. By 1574 (and possibly earlier) Bridewell and Bethlem were jointly administered by a Court of Governors. A separate house of occupations, or reformatory school for destitute and delinquent youths of both sexes, was added to Bridewell in 1830, originally in the grounds of Bethlem Royal Hospital at St George's Fields. Following the closure of the house of correction in 1855, the house of occupations changed its name to King Edward's Schools, and reduced the 'criminal element' in its admissions, in 1860. The boys' school was moved to Witley, Surrey in 1867, and the girls' school was closed in 1922. Bethlem Royal Hospital and King Edward's School continued to be administered jointly until the advent of the National Health Service in 1948.

LCC London County Council
Date Range: 1889 - 1965

Until the advent of the National Health Service in 1948, London County Council ran, through its Asylums Committee, a number of asylums, including Colney Hatch, Hanwell, Banstead, Claybury and the Maudsley, as well as a pathological laboratory, based at Claybury from 1894 to 1914 and at the Maudsley from 1914 (prior to its opening as a civilian psychiatric hospital) onwards. The committee was known as the Asylums Committee from its establishment in 1889, as the Asylums and Mental Deficiency Committee after the Mental Deficiency Act 1913, and as the Mental Hospitals Committee from 1 August 1922 onwards. By the late 1930s, it appears to have been governed by the Council's Public Health Committee. The work of the pathological laboratory expanded during and after the First World War, and gained University of London teaching hospital status for the Maudsley in 1924. London County Council relinquished the management of the Maudsley in 1948, and in the same year the hospital's medical school was created an institute of the British Postgraduate Medical Federation, and renamed the Institute of Psychiatry.
