Case Study - Research

I completed a contract for NHS Forth Valley in relation to their submission to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. The research was on the records of the Royal Scottish National Hospital which closed in 2002. The records are kept at the University of Stirling. I catalogued them in 2015 as part of a Wellcome Trust funded project so when NHS Forth Valley received the request from the Inquiry, the University Archivist recommended me to do the work.

The information required was very detailed and particularly related to policy and procedure. I read through all the post-1948 records looking for evidence for each question in the 33-page report. I attended meetings with the NHS legal team and responded to requests for statistical analysis in particular areas.

I would welcome enquiries about further research work.
