Administrative / Biographical History

The  Glasgow Schools Health Service was formed on the basis of 3 Acts of Parliament, passed in  1906 ,  1908  and  1913 . The last of these authorised the provision of medical treatment, in addition to the inspection of school pupils. The Govan School Board and the Glasgow (City and Barony) School Board were responsible for the service in their respective areas until the  1918  Education (Scotland) Act replaced them with the Glasgow Education Authority which in turn was abolished in 1930 when its functions were transferred to Glasgow Corporation.
