Lothian Health Services Archive Clinical Case Note Collection (CCs)

TitleLothian Health Services Archive Clinical Case Note Collection (CCs)
DescriptionLHSA holds just over 100 collections of twentieth-century folder-based patient case notes (comprising in total approximately 1 million individual case notes). The majority of them relate to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, but other hospitals are represented. As a whole, the collections cover a wide variety of medical specialties and were produced by numerous practitioners. As well as pro-forma record sheets and patient-doctor correspondence, they also include lab reports, X-rays, photographs and other visual representations. Some of the collections, primarily from the 1970s, are held on microfilm only, created by the hospitals themselves, prior to disposing of the paper originals. These have been digitised by LHSA to provide a preservation copy. For further information on LHSA’s collections and services please see
