    Default Resources for finding medical professionals

    Hopefully, this is a link to the various research guides published by The National Archives regarding doctors and nurses. https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/...urses#guidance

    London Metropolitan Archives holds the Nightingale Archive, plus records for over 80 other hospitals including Guy's and Westminster, workhouse infirmaries, psychiatric and fever hospitals.
    LMA also have research guides. From the link, scroll down the various letters for Doctors, Hospitals, Infirmaries, Nurses, Teaching Hospitals, etc, for links to those guides.

    The British Red Cross Society, Museum and Archive section, holds record cards for VAD nurses who served in both World Wars.

    The Florence Nightingale Museum in Lambeth Palace Road has exhibits relating to the Nightingale Training School.

    The Wellcome Institute may be able to help with the whereabouts of individual hospital records. Some hospitals retain their own records, others may have deposited them in the local County Record Office.

    Nursing journals (though I don't know how many are still in existence):
    MIdwives' Chronicle and Nursing Notes (first published 1887)
    Nursing Mirror and Midwives' Journal (1888)
    Nursing Record (1888. In 1903 it became the British Journal of Nursing.)
    Queen's Nurses Magazine (1904)
    Nursing Times (1905)
    Irish Nursing News (1922)
    Irish Nurses' Magazine (1933)
    The Catholic Nurse (1933)

    Apologies.
    I've just found that the link to the LMA Research Guides didn't work.
    I've now replaced it with
    https://search.lma.gov.uk/scripts/mw...uage=144&file=[lma]home.html
    and hopefully when you click on 'research guides' in the top banner you'll end up with an alpha list of all the guides,,
