Medical Records in the South Wales Coalfield Collection

Wellcome Trust

Medicine, Health, and Industrialisation

These pages look at the occupational health and the community health of the Coalfield between the late nineteenth century and the foundation of the National Health Service in 1948. It was funded by a Research Resources in Medical History Award from the Wellcome Trust in 2005, as part of a project to identify medical records in the South Wales Coalfield Collection at Swansea University.

The online catalogue, accessible from this page, was also enhanced to recognize medical records as a result of the project.
