Patient Case Studies

Most of the case studies link admission records with the surgeons’ reports
of operations, plus other data, such as burial records

This is a collection of case studies of patients, mainly from the 1850s (there are also notes on some First World War patients). The Victorian case studies add more detail to the entries in the admissions registers. The main data source is a series of short reports submitted by the hospital’s surgeons to the Medical Times and Gazette. These have been supplemented with information from census returns, burial records and newspaper reports.

There are also a small number of medical cases, based on articles written by the hospital’s honorary physician, and published in the medical press.
