Pre 1948 Patient Case Books and Files

Scope and Content

The running dates given for each patient case book reflects the date of first and last admission. The final date found in individual patient records will vary and therefore may be subjected to closure, under the 100 year closure period. Access to individual patient’s case notes will therefore be dealt with on a case by case basis. Included in the series of patient case files are continuation case files of patients admitted from 1848 onwards. These volumes are indexed and therefore it is worth checking if a patients case notes are continued from a previous volume.


A record at this level is a section heading rather than a description of an individual document. Please explore the contents of this section and use the individual item's reference number when ordering.
