Digitisation

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.
