Welcome to Oxfordshire Health Archives
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. We also provide advice to NHS staff on the management, care and disposal of recent records.
Access to our collections is at Oxfordshire History Centre (see note below about current restrictions). 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.
WE HAVE MOVED
- After over 35 years at the Warneford Hospital Oxfordshire Health Archives has moved to the Oxfordshire History Centre at St Luke’s Church, Cowley, where users will have access to our collections through the History Centre Search Room. We continue to be a separate NHS funded service.
- Now that all our collections have arrived at the History Centre we have to complete the work needed to make them available. Our boxes have been relabelled and new location lists have been prepared. We are now working on adapting our catalogues, compiled over many years in several different formats, into a unified catalogue for use in the History Centre. Until this work is completed access to our material must be made by contacting us in the first instance. We ask for your patience whilst our two (very) part time staff carry out this extremely large project.
