Event description

Description

The Metropolitan Asylums Board (MAB) (1867-1930) played a significant role caring for London's sick poor. Institutional care was transformed from squalid and inadequate provision to one which provided general and specialist MAB establishments, accessible to all London's inhabitants, laying the foundations for the NHS.Discover more from the LMA collections.
