Administrative history

In 1915 the Norfolk County Asylum was offered to the War Office for use as a War Hospital. Patients of the Asylum were evacuated to other asylums in the region and county patients were admitted to the Norwich City Asylum. The Medical Superintendent became Officer Commanding the Hospital until 1919 when control of the hospital reverted to the control of a Committee of Visitors. A full account of this period in the hospital's history can be found in the Annual Report for 1920 and a list of patients transferred was separately published.
