4. How do I use ‘browse by contributor’?
A contributor is an organisation or individual who shared any documents they held relating to events at Gosport War Memorial Hospital with the Gosport Independent Panel.
The contributor’s name that appears in the ‘browse’ list is their name at the time they contributed the material. This may be different from their name at the time of any deaths, or the time when the material was created. For example, the contributor may have inherited documents from an organisation that no longer exists, or it may have merged with another organisation, causing its name to change.
When you click on any of the document titles, you are taken to a document landing page that gives more information about the item. You can also download the document from there.
