Accessing hospital records for 1943.

My great, great grandmother Mary Ann Katherine Coombs died on the 8th September 1943 in the Archway Hospital in Holloway, North London aged 79.

I have a funny feeling that the patients records are still with the hospital which is now the Whittington Hospital as they are not at the London Metropolitan Archives. There is the chance they may not have survived either :(

However she died of arteriosclerosis and cerebral thrombosis (Stroke) but I dont think I would be allowed to view her records as they are less than 100 years old.

One thing I would like to access is her admission records to find out how long she was in hospital before she died, whether she had a stroke at home and was rushed there or she was already in hospital when she suffered a stroke and died.
