Level of description: Collection
Extent: 2.3 linear metres
Name of creator(s): Dartford and Darenth Hospital Management Committee
Following April 1948 Darenth and Stone Hospital Management Committee was set up as part of the transferral programme of hospitals into the newly created National Health Service (NHS). The hospitals in the group were Stone House Hospital (formerly City of London Mental Hospital), Darenth Park Hospital and Mabledon Hospital.
Re-organisation of the Heath Service in June 1971 led to the amalgamation of Stone House and Mabledon and Darenth Park with the Dartford Hospital Management Committee, to form the Dartford and Darenth Hospital Management Committee. The committee also managed other hospitals including Joyce Green Hospital, Orchard Hospital and Lower Southern Hospital.
The Committee reported to South East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board. In 1974, Dartford and Gravesham District Health Authority took over control within South East Thames Regional Health Authority.
