Collection: NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Archives

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Archives

The remit of the Archive is to acquire, organise, describe and make available records of the NHS and the records of predecessor and partner bodies (including those with a separate legal identity) in accordance with the Code of Practice for Records Management in the NHS in Scotland.

Records are held relating to: significant developments in medical care that have taken place primarily in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area; the decision making processes of the Board; buildings and land belonging to the NHS.

In addition the Archive acquires personal papers and private records where these were created by persons of outstanding distinction and/or relate to significant developments in medical care that have taken place primarily in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area or which serve to provide information about groups and grades of staff who would otherwise be under-documented in the Archive.
