How to look for records of... Patients, doctors or nurses
How can I view the records covered in this guide?
The National Archives does not hold patients’ records and is not the best place to find information about doctors or nurses. However, this guide will help you find the doctors and nurses records that we do hold, most of which relate to the administration and policy of health services, as well as records from other archives.
There are many sources of information about medical staff, most of which are in other archives, although not all records survive. Most surviving records from hospitals are in local archives.
