Welcome to Oxfordshire Health Archives

Radcliffe Infirmary Operating Theatre with Radcliffe Observatory 1931

Oxfordshire Health Archives, hosted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and Oxfordshire County Council, selects and cares for the historic archives of NHS hospitals in Oxfordshire. The archives in our care include those of Oxfordshire hospitals and NHS administrative bodies, Leagues of Friends and Nurses' Alumni organizations. In addition, we provide advice to NHS staff on the management, care and disposal of recent records.

We also answer enquiries from those unable to visit in person. Copies of our material are available; a charge is usually made for this service.
