Lindville Hospital, Blackrock Road, Cork

I know this hospital closed in 1996, would anyone know where I would go to contact an Archives department for Patient records who was in this hospital from 1971 to 1972?
The patient was a close relation of mine who is now deceased.

Well you'd be asking about the HSE who are up to their eyes at moment with Virus...

Sensitive personal records, such as medical records, are often closed for a significant period of time, e.g. 100 years.

I can't find the hospital in question but the Access paragraph on collections held at the NAI says medical information about individuals after 1900 are closed.
I would think it would be the same for all archived medical records.

end of page 7.

This is more modern, clearly there is a code of practice but don't know where to find the code for hospitals.
