    This series indexes VPRS 7397 Casebooks of Female Patients from 1871 to 1912 and female patients' case records in VPRS 7693 Patient Clinical Notes between 1912 and 1953.

    The series has been transferred in two consignments:
    P1 from the Charles Brothers Museum, Parkville
    P2 from the Kew Mental/Psychiatric Hospital.

    The volume in the P2 consignment index VPRS 7397 Case Books of Female Patients from 1871 to 1904. The volume indexing the Case Books between 1904 and 1912 is not extant.

    This volume is self--indexing. Entries are listed alphabetically by patient surname and give the Case Book volume number (I to XIV) and folio number references. The date of death/discharge/transfer of the patient is also given.

    The volume in the P1 consignment is also self-indexing, with entries listed alphabetically by patient surname. This volume has "continuation notes" at the beginning of each alpha section which index volumes XVIII to XX of the Case Books in VPRS 7397

    However the bulk of the information in this volume provides an index for female patients' records in VPRS 7693 Patient Clinical Notes between 1912 and 1953. As the patient clinical notes are arranged according to date of death or discharge this is the relevant information to be obtained from the index.
