International Centre for Drug Policy (ICDP)

Papers from the International Centre for Drug Policy (ICDP), formerly known as the Centre for Addiction Studies. The ICDP was established in late 2003 by St George’s Hospital Medical School to act as a broker to promote excellence in the field of substance misuse prevention in particular drug policy within the international arena. It had a national and international reputation for its activities and was based at St George’s, University of London. Its Director was Professor Hamid Ghodse, who was a world leader in international drug policy and addictions, and held the post many times of President of the United Nations International Narcotics Control Board (INCB). The ICDP participated in a number of activities relating to treatment and prevention of tobacco, alcohol and drugs, including:-

• education and training
• research and development
• policy development
• consultancy and advice

The papers include reports from various projects the Centre was running. These include RETAD; Tobacco Free Initiative; Herbal Medicine; Croydon Alcohol Interventions, Substance Misuse in the Undergraduate Medical Curriculum Project.

ICDP was set up in 2003, and continued its work as a separate unit under the medical school's Mental Health Division before being moved to the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) in 2013, following the death of Professor Hamid Ghodse.

Post Mortem Examinations and Case Books

  • 406 PM
  • Collection
  • 1840-1946

The post mortem records contain manuscript case notes, with medical notes both pre and post mortem. These include details on patients’ admission to the hospital, treatments and medication administered to patients and the medical history of patients; the medical histories were copied into the volumes from hospital registers, which are no longer extant. The post mortem cases include detailed pathological findings made during the detailed examination of the body after death. From the 1880s onwards the case books contain original anatomical drawings and photographs.

For more information and updates about the project, see our project page

The following information is recorded for each case. The information is transcribed from the case notes and/or the relevant index and, where relevant, additionally standardised using MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)

• Name of the patient. If a name is not entered in the volume, it is noted in the catalogue as ‘[No name stated]’

• Gender of the patient (female / male / unknown)

• Age of the patient. Usually in numbers, following the original, with the following exceptions: 4/12 = 4 months, 4/52 = 4 weeks, 4/365 = 4 days. If no age is entered, it is noted in the catalogue as ‘[No age stated]’

• Occupation of the patient. Where no occupation is entered, it is noted in the catalogue as ‘[No occupation stated]’. Children are often designated according to their father’s or mother’s occupation and women by their husband’s occupation (e.g. ‘F / Horsekeeper’, ‘M. Charwoman’, ‘Hd Grocer’); these have been rendered in the catalogue as ‘[Child of] Horsekeeper’, ‘[Wife of] Grocer’

• Date of admission and date of death

• The names of the doctors treating or examining the patient. ‘Admitted under the care of’ denotes the senior doctor in charge of the case (usually entered at the top of the page and in the index); ‘Post mortem performed by’ denotes the doctor responsible for the post mortem examination (usually signed at the bottom of the page) and ‘Medical examination performed by’ denotes the doctor responsible for the medical examination prior to death (usually signed at the bottom of the page). The earliest records usually contain only one name, and some of the later ones may contain multiple names in each category. An authority record (name access point) with basic biographical details has been created for each doctor mentioned in the records; these can be used to explore all the cases related to a particular individual

• Disease(s) or cause of death of the patient. Transcribed from the medical case and/or the index and standardised, e.g. ‘Disease (transcribed): Phthisis. Fractured base. Disease (standardised): Tuberculosis (lungs). Fracture (skull)’

• Medical and post mortem notes. Brief summary description or transcription of the case notes relating to previous medical history (not a full transcription of the case notes)

• Note on whether the case includes illustrations or photographs; these can also be browsed via genre access points

• Note on whether the death was caused by trauma, accident or suicide

• Subject access points, using standardised terms from MeSH, with disease type (e.g. respiratory tract diseases, cardiovascular diseases) and anatomy type (e.g. cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system), which can be used for browsing all relevant cases

Salmon Committee

Documents relating to the Salmon Committee, which was set up in 1963 (under the chairmanship of Brian Salmon, and also including St George's matron Muriel Powell) to advise on senior nursing staff structure, and resulted in the Salmon Report in 1966. St George's was one of the hospitals selected to participate in a pilot scheme to implement the recommendations of the report.

Much of the material in this sub-series appears to have belonged to Joyce G. Whitehead, a hospital nursing officer at the Ministry of Health.
