Service Update: January 2023

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Archives services are currently unavailable while NHS GGC reviews service options.

An update on service availability will be made available as soon as possible.

Please note that University of Glasgow and Glasgow Life staff do not have access to the NHS GGC Archives and are unable to respond to enquiries about NHS GGC Archives. 

We thank you for your understanding at this time.


Until issues of digital permanence have effective solutions it is not our policy to retro-convert records created in paper and card formats, except for display and outreach purposes or where the costs of maintenance and migration will be met by an outside body.

A large part of the Gartnavel Royal Hospital archive has been digitised with generous funding from the Wellcome Trust. Patient records for the years 1814 to 1913 and administrative records to the mid-twentieth century have been digitised and are available via the link.  Guidance notes on using this resource appear in the sub-section below.
