Registers and case notes.

Administrative / Biographical History

This collection contains records from a number of [south-side] Glasgow VD Clinics which were uplifted from the SGH Genitourinary Medicine Department. In 1948 these clinics [with the possible exception of Broomielaw] came under the control of the Glasgow Victoria Hospitals BOM. In the 1950s/60s the reduction in the number of cases treated led to the closure of a number of these clinics. In 1968 a new VD clinic opened in the SGH [and most of the services on the south-side were transferred there]. The SGH Dept. closed in June 2000 and its services were transferred to the new facility at the old Glasgow Eye Infirmary building.
