The NHS in Lothian

LHSA is the archive for all records (medical and administrative) created by the NHS in Lothian.  As a result, we have a significant collection of the records of NHS Lothian (NHSL) and its predecessor bodies.  We regularly take in new sets of records from NHSL so the collection is always expanding.

This source list is designed to take you through the administrative history of the NHS in Lothian from its establishment in 1948 until the present day, and will pinpoint the individual collections of records relevant to each incarnation or subset of the NHS in Lothian.  It is a complex history, the management structure having undergone numerous changes over the years.  Please use the menu above-right to begin your research.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
