Karitane Hospital records

A decrepit old book
Where you a plunket baby?  Plunket began in 1907. The records of this organisation are at the Hocken Library in Dunedin.

It is a large collection of approx 150 metres and the only use it might have for you and me is if our ancestors or ourselves were admitted to a Karitane Hospital.  Otherwise  the records consist of administration, research or staff training records and nurses employed.

All medical and staff records are restricted and permission to view these has to be obtained from the Plunket Society through the Hocken Library. There are no plans to make them freely available.

  1. Hi

    I'd like to access the Karitane staff records as my mother was a Karitane nurse.

    Is there a specific email address I use to get at the Plunket Society through the Hocken Library?
