This database provides information on the existence and
location of the records of UK hospitals. There are currently over 2,800
entries, which have been compiled by the Wellcome Library. These can be found by searching the database.
This data is now openly available on data.gov.uk under the Open Government Licence.
The Hospital Records database is no longer being updated. We continue to make this information available for inspection and reuse but can no longer guarantee its accuracy. The dataset was last updated in 2012 (many fields may be more out of date than this) and this should be borne in mind when using it – particularly the location of records may have changed. You can search Discovery to find records held here at The National Archives and in other UK archives.
