Meercroft Hospital and Devon Public Hospital
The Patient Files-Maternity date from 1950 to 1958. They came from the Meercroft Hospital in Devonport and the Devon Public Hospital in Latrobe. The files were selected from the patient records of the Mersey General Hospital, which succeeded the other two Hospitals, because their Labour Ward Books for this period could not be found.
Closed B50 years
B50 means that these records are closed to the general public for 50 years from the date of the last entry in them. They can, however, be opened at the discretion of the State Archivist. People wishing to access them should contact the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office.
