Progress in the Dermatological Service in the West of Scotland

Dr Jack O'D Alexander, Emeritus Consultant Dermatologist, Glasgow Royal Infirmary

In this follow-up to my paper of 1971 (Brit J Dermatol 84:470-86) I shall deal with the general situation and its development and then with the individual skin units. My knowledge of this springs from my having been on the staff of the Glasgow Royal Infirmary Skin Department in various grades from 1.4.47 until 1.4.80 apart from 4 months spent as consultant dermatologist at Stobhill Hospital in 1964-65.
