Other information

There are papers concerning this hospital in 3 separate accessions. Two of the accessions were deposited with us by NHS Supplies when they were clearing out a warehouse. The material is quite mixed and I believe may contain the odd item from Sutton Hospital. At present there are no plans to list this collection. It is not available for public use at all.
