NHS Grampian Archives

Post by Archiver » Mon Feb 23, 2015 12:20 pm

This has been released by NHS Grampian Archives (formerly known as Northern Health Services Archives):

NHS Grampian Archives have announced new opening hours with effect from Monday 2nd March 2015, following their relocation to the University of Aberdeen’s Special Collections Centre. The historic collections held by NHS Grampian can now be accessed during the following times:

Wednesday – Friday, 9.30am – 4.30pm, with late night opening on Thursday until 6.30pm during University term-time*
*People wishing to use the late night opening must give at least 24 hours advance notice.
Monday & Tuesday, 9.30am – 4.30pm – by prior appointment only.

Please note that access to some of the records may be restricted under the Data Protection Act (1998), and that some records are held offsite. It is advised that visitors contact Fiona Musk, NHS Grampian Archivist, by emailing "grampian.archives [AT] nhs.net" or by telephone on 01224 274912 prior to your visit to ensure that records are available. This is especially recommended if you are travelling from a long distance, or have limited visiting time. Please note that if the NHS Grampian Archivist is not available during the above opening hours, access to the NHS collections is restricted.

Further information on the collections, including the online catalogue, can be found at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/about/spe ... n-archives.

Access to the records is via the Wolfson Reading Room in the University of Aberdeen's Special Collections Centre, which is located in the Sir Duncan Rice Library on Bedford Road, Aberdeen. In order to visit, photographic ID and proof of address is required in order to register for an access card. Further details on this, and how to apply in advance before visiting, can be found at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/get-started/visiting-us and you are also advised to read the Wolfson Reading Room guidelines available at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/documents ... _Guide.pdf

These opening hours will be reviewed following a trial period.
