Welcome to Oxfordshire Health Archives

Oxfordshire Health Archives (OHA) brings together a medical based archive under the Public Records Act (1958). The archives in our care include those of National Health Service hospitals and associated administrative bodies, Leagues of Friends and Nurses’ Alumni organisations. 

The archive operates as a public service for users and National Health Service employees. For those who are unable to visit us in person, a copying service is provided. This can incur a charge.

The Oxfordshire Health Archives (OHA) aims to continue and develop in it’s mission to select, manage, preserve and make accessible archival material in accordance with best professional practice.
