Scope and Content

Included in the correspondence is material relating to applications, testimonials and references, nurse training, pensions and national insurance and (later on) advertisements by the Retreat for posts and circulars from the General Medical Council and other official circulars
There is correspondence with individual staff about various topics (more of this type of material survives in the earlier folders)
