Medical Staff Association

Scope and Content

The Clinical Society of the Southern General Hospital was formed in 1945 for the purpose of holding clinical meetings and discussions. The Medical Staff Association [MSA] was formed in 1950 to represent hospital medical staff in discussions with NHS management: thereafter the Clinical Society functioned under the auspices of the MSA. Staff of Darnley Hospital, David Elder Infirmary, Elder Cottage Hospital and Shieldhall Hospital were eligible to join the Medical Staff Association and participate in its activities.
