The Registers of Patients and Admission Books, kept by the Wolston Park Hospital and later Ipswich Special Hospital then Challinor Centre Ipswich, record details of patient admissions between 1861 and 1994.
Access to some of these records is restricted to protect personal privacy.
Details entered in the registers vary over time but may include date of last previous admission (if any), number of register, number for the year, date of admission, patient name, sex, marital status, occupation, nativity, residence, religion, diagnosis, date of discharge, and observations (for example, discharged, transferred to, death and burial).
