NHS Tayside (Scottish Gaelic: Bòrd SSN Taobh Tatha) is one of the fourteen regions of NHS Scotland. It provides healthcare services in Angus, the City of Dundee and Perth and Kinross. NHS Tayside is headquartered at King's Cross Hospital, a former fever hospital located in Clepington Road, Dundee.[1][2] It currently has one of the largest hospitals in the world and also one of the largest teaching hospitals in the world (Ninewells Hospital, Dundee).

It has three Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs): Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross.

History[edit]

NHS Tayside was originally formed as Tayside Health Board in April 1974.[3] It replaced the Eastern Regional Hospital Board, that had been created in July, as having the responsibility for managing hospital provision in Dundee, Angus and Perth and Kinross.[4][5]

It was organised into three Community Health Partnerships (CHPs): Angus, Dundee and Perth, which were replaced by health and social Care Partnerships that became fully operational in April 2016.[6]

As of 2017 it is responsible for the governance of 3 major hospitals, several community hospitals and over 60 GP surgeries and other health centres[3]. These employ over 30,000 staff.

Archives[edit]

The archives of NHS Tayside and its predecessors are held by Archive Services, University of Dundee. The archives include many records relating to many of the former and current hospitals located in the Tayside area.[7][8] They also include records of defunct hospitals including Dundee Royal Infirmary, Maryfield Hospital and Murthly Hospital.[9]
