Carcoar Hospital NSW - Patient Records
« on: Friday 29 May 20 08:55 BST (UK) »
G'day All,

I had my 3rd Great Grandfather, William Dawes, die of consumption 25th November 1875.  The health records were removed by NSW Health before closing.

Who would I contact to find out more ?  Tried the Carcoar Hospital Museum to no avail.

Hooroo for now,
Joe

Hi Joe from Junee    :D

If the hospital had retained the records from that era, then I suggest you contact NSW Health by email to ask them where their archives for Carcoar Hospital  circa 1875 are , and what the protocol is for gaining access ...  sometimes there can be officialdom blockages to overcome .... likely any extant records would be in storage , likely not fully catalogued .. likely at Kingswood along with other NSW government  archives, and likely in a deteriorated condition prior to delivery to Kingswood.  If so, Kingswood would likely need time to access fragility etc .... sometimes the general public cannot be given direct access.
