Insurance Committees (Pre NHS)


The Insurance Committees' function was to deal with claims for treatment under the National Health Insurance Act (1911). They operated via various sub-committees - namely Finance, Sanatorium Benefit, and Medical Benefit committees to make provision for sickness and maternity benefit.

The operations of the committees were restructured under the National Health Insurance (Scotland) Act of 1937, and their function ceased entirely with the beginning of the National Health Service.
