Correspondence Files on Patients, arranged Chronologically

About this work
This is a separate series of correspondence about patients, arranged in chronological order (mainly by quarter although sometimes for longer or shorter periods). This seems to have been a relatively short-lived alternative way of filing patients' correspondence - the series begins in 1922 and ends in 1930, after which date letters are once more filed under name of patient (and are thus found in RET 6/20/1). RET 20/2 has been left in its original form and no rearrangement has been made. Letters contained in the files in RET 6/20/2 seem to be similar to those in RET 6/20/1 and the period covered also overlaps. For some patients, material survives in both series. There is no index of names but the correspondence is arranged alphabetically within each chronological section.
Access to all of the material in RET 6/20/2 is restricted under Data Protection Act 1998.
