The Glasgow and West of Scotland Association of Registered Medical Women was founded in 1904.

The following year the Glasgow Association re-named itself the Scottish Western Association. Between 1919 and 1932 the Scottish Western Association met regularly with the Eastern Association to promote the interests of Scottish medical women. The Medical Women’s Federation established a Scottish Standing Committee in 1932.
