Access to Records

Due to the nature of the collections in the archive some of the records contain personal information about living individuals of a sensitive nature, for example hospital records.

In such cases records may be marked as closed for a set period, usually 100 years from the date of creation. Closed records are not generally available to view, but we do have procedures in place to allow access to records in certain circumstances. For example records may in some cases be accessed by next of kin, or for research of a purely statistical nature.

If you do wish to apply to consult closed records please contact us.
