About this work
This correspondence relates to requests for information about the Retreat, the terms on which patients were admitted and the fees paid on behalf of patients. Both incoming and outgoing material is included. The enquiries are arranged by date and are in the alphabetical order of prospective patients' names. Where the prospective patient's name is not known, the name of the patient's doctor, if given, is used, alternatively the name of the enquirer, who was usually a relative or friend of the patient. Some medical information on prospective patients can also be found in these files
Access to all of the correspondence files in RET 6/21 is restricted under the Data Protection Act 1998.
