ARA General admission registers

The format of admission registers changed several times between 1683 and 1973. ARA-01 begins by listing patients in residence on 1 May 1683 before recording subsequent admissions. Volumes ARA-01 to ARA-09 give only brief details of admissions; fuller details are provided in volumes ARA-10 onwards. The dates of ARA-10 to ARA-19 overlap those of ARA-01 to ARA-09, so that the admission entries in these volumes are duplicated. The dates of ARA-22 and ARA-23 also overlap. ARA-23 is the first in a run of seventeen admission registers (also known as Commissioners' Books) which were produced to comply with Lunacy Commission guidelines on admission entries (and also include details of discharge), and much of the information in it is duplicated in ARA-22. Duplication was discontinued thereafter. Admission registers appear to have been discontinued altogether after September 1902 (ARA-39), and were resumed (in a form which recorded brief particulars only) upon the advent of the National Health Service in July 1948 (ARA-40 onwards). Registers containing fuller patient information survive for admissions from 1962 to 1971 (ARA-50) and from 1964 to 1973 (ARA-51 and ARA-52). After 1973, admission registers appear to have been discontinued (although admission and discharge registers continued to be kept until 1991).

BPP Admission papers of those not admitted as patients

In the nineteenth century, admission papers were posted to the Steward of Bethlem Royal Hospital in advance of the weekly meeting of the Bethlem Sub-Committee. Most of those for whom admission papers were completed were admitted to the Hospital, usually seven days after the Sub-Committee had approved their admission. However, a minority were not admitted, either because the petition relating to their admission was refused by the Sub-Committee, or, in cases in which the petition was approved, because (for whatever reason) they were not brought to the hospital to be admitted. Admission papers were not numbered and filed until admission, and papers relating to those who were not admitted must have been discarded in the normal course of events. Papers of those who were not admitted in 1815-1816 and 1848 seem to have been preserved by accident amongst the papers of those who were admitted. Unlike the main run of patient admission papers, the papers dating from 1848 often include letters from petitioners, doctors and others - perhaps because letters relating to admitted patients were removed for inclusion in the relevant casebook entry, or in other files.

HCM Minutes of the Hospital Committee and predecessors

Minutes of Bethlem (Sub-) Committee from 1709 to 1930, the Bethlem Grand Committee from 1789 to 1802, Bethlem House Committee from 1930 to 1949, and Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital Committee from 1949 to 1976. The (Sub-) Committee was a weekly meeting of a fixed proportion of those hospital Governors that had been elected to the (Sub-) Committee, who were obliged to attend in rotation. Its business was the admission and discharge of patients, the auditing of monies and supplies, and other everyday affairs of the hospital. The Grand Committee, consisting of all those hospital Governors that had been elected to the (Sub-) Committee, was summoned only to approve contracts or transact business of exceptional significance. The name of the (Sub-) Committee was changed to the House Committee in 1930.
