Collection Policy

Lothian Health Services Archive primarily collects records of long-term legal, administrative, epidemiological and historical value produced by the NHS within the Lothian area, including those of predecessor bodies.

In addition, non-NHS institutional records and personal papers related to the local history of health care and the history of Scottish medicine are also collected.
