Patient files

Conditions Governing Access

Because of the sensitive nature of much of the information contained in these records there is a 75 year closure period on all patient records. There is a 100 year closure period on records of minors.

If you seek information on patient records which are less than 75 years old, you must apply to the Director of Public Health Glasgow. The application should be made through the GGHB Archivist who if permission is granted will carry out a search on your behalf.

Individuals seeking information regarding their own treatment should contact the archivist.
