Welcome to HHARP, the home of historical children’s hospital records
HHARP (The Historic Hospital Admission Registers Project) provides access to 140,213 admission records to four British children’s hospitals: three in London, the Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Evelina and the Alexandra Hip Hospital for Children, and one from Scotland, the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow. Between them the databases cover a period from 1852 to 1921. In addition the case notes of two eminent early paediatricians can be accessed, as can a library of articles and images relating to the four hospitals and to children’s health in Victorian and Edwardian Britain. Medical historians and demographers will find HHARP an invaluable tool in the study of the early development of paediatric medicine. Family historians and local historians will find a treasure trove of information on families and healthcare in Victorian and Edwardian London and Glasgow.

Willie Perry: patient from 19 November 1877 to 29 December 1881
William Perry was admitted on 19 November 1877, age two, with chronic disease of the larynx. In hospital he was given a tracheotomy, and was discharged (cured) but he was back in less than a year, on 18 February 1879. He was still suffering from a chronic disease of the larynx, and the old tracheotomy was causing problems. Still, he was discharged, relieved, on 16 March the same year. Willie made his third and final visit in late November 1881, with ‘old tracheotomy’ as the diagnosis. He was discharged relieved, on 29 December 1881. To find out more about Willie click here.
