Biographical history

The Eastern Regional Hospital Board was established in July 1948 in response to the NHS (Scotland) Act. From headquarters in Dundee it managed hospital provisions in the counties of Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross. Its services were also used by the North and East Fife hospitals. Following reorganisation in the mid-1970s, it was replaced by the Tayside Health Board. The board consisted of three boards of management, each concerned with one or more hospitals grouped as to type and geographical region.
