Hospital Records Database Description: "

The History of Medicine Library itself holds only a small amount of hospital records: there is some material in the Western Manuscripts collection, chiefly relating to private lunatic asylums, and some in the holdings of the former Contemporary Medical Archives Centre summarized in various Sources leaflets. Please refer to Archives and Manuscripts for more information."
