New to the archives...
Royal Children's Hospital Collection now available
|Records from the Royal Children’s Hospital dating as far back as 1870 are now part of our collection here at the state archives.
Over the course of the last five years, records ranging from hospital minutes and correspondence, to autopsy registers and nurses’ lecture books have all been added to the collection.
The final transfer, which took place earlier this year, includes minutes, agenda and papers of the Committee of Management, patient histories, and nurse training records.
One interesting record we discovered in the collection was this September 1954 edition of the Parents’ Paper (pictured left).
