London’s Hospital Fund


  • London Metropolitan Archives

Project summary

The King’s Fund, established in 1897, has been a pioneering force in healthcare provision and medical services in the UK. Its archives contain material of great importance to the medical history of this country. The archives comprise 132 linear metres, and consist predominantly of printed and manuscript paper files and volumes. There is also a small amount of rolled architectural plans, photographs, slides and compact discs, and two reels of film. This project is to repackage, preserve and conserve the material, and to create a catalogue to international standards.
