Dates of existence


Health Councils began in 1975 following the publication of the Millan Report. Initially three councils were established, in Angus, Dundee and Perth and Kinross. In 1991 these came together to be known as Tayside Health Council. The council was an independent body, that surveyed the service provided by the NHS from the patients perspective. By conducting visits to NHS premises, and making use of volunteers and members of the public to compile surveys and reports, they provided evidence of the level of care received by patients. The council was dissolved 31st March 2005, and replaced by The Scottish Health Council, a national organisation with local offices in each health board area.
