Administrative/Biographical History

The Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital was opened in 1914. It had been promoted by the office bearers of a Homoeopathic dispensary founded in 1909. The original hospital was replaced by the present premises in 1931: at that time it had 30 beds. This has now been reduced to 20. The Hospital was under the Board of Management for Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospitals from 1948-1974 and shared a secretariat with the Board of Management for Kirkintilloch and Kilsyth Hospitals and the Board of Management for Glasgow Dental Hospital. In 1974 it was placed in the Western District of the Greater Glasgow Health Board and in 1993 it became the responsibility of the West Glasgow University NHS Trust.
