The Maudsley Hospital

Extract

The Maudsley Hospital was opened on January 31, 1923, by the Minister of Health (the Right Honourable Sir Arthur Griffith-Boscawen, M.A., J.P.). Fifteen years have now elapsed since the late Dr. Henry Maudsley made his generous offer to the London County Council of 30,000 towards the cost of erection of a hospital with three main objects: (1) Early treatment of cases of curable mental disorder; (2) promotion of scientific research into the causes and pathology of mental disorder with a view to prevention and treatment; (3) provision of facilities for clinical instruction in psychiatry. The realisation of Dr. Maudsley's project was delayed in the first instance by difficulty in finding a site complying with his condition that it should be within four miles of Charing Cross, and later by the occurrence of the war.
