Administrative/Biographical History

Children’s Home Hospital opened in Aberfoyle in 1903, then moved to Strathblane in 1913. Initially it was intended primarily for children with tubercular bone diseases. Latterly it provided long-term or respite care for chronically sick children, particularly teenagers. Following the creation of the National Health Service in 1948 it was managed in tandem with the much larger Royal Hospital for Sick Children. The Children’s Home Hospital closed in 1994.
