This project focuses on records held at the Royal London Hospital Archives relating to patients with sexually transmitted infections. The archive includes records of the Whitechapel Clinic – later known as the Ambrose King Centre – and venereal patient records of the London Hospital Skin Department (1900-1940). The grant will: preserve, clean and repackage unique archival records to ensure their stability and long-term survival; digitise patient registers and a series of microfilm case notes; compile a detailed catalogue of all project material; identify and digitally reproduce significant visual materials. Personal details will be redacted and some material will remain restricted under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.
