Metropolitan Asylums Board Institutions

In 1867, the Metropolitan Asylums Board (MAB) was set up to take over from London's workhouses the care of harmless lunatics, imbeciles and infectious cases. This it did through the provision of special asylums, fever hospitals, and a variety of other establishments as listed below. Further information on the MAB itself is given on a separate page.
