Scope and Content

Platt's consulting rooms were at 12 Lorne Street, where he saw mostly private patients. Platt kept patient records in the attic above his Lorne Street practice, but in the early 1970s a leaking roof caused a flood that destroyed many of the records. Those that have survived were disordered and incomplete, although some were ordered by patient reference number. Many items are water damaged. This subseries contains patient case notes and card indexes of patients. A wide variety of orthopaedic disorders is represented, including injuries to football players, and a number of cases include x-rays.
