Admin HistoryEllerslie House Home for Paralysed Soldiers and Sailors was set up in 1917 at the instigation of the Nottingham Sport Club, and by private subscription. Ellerslie House itself, on the corner of First Avenue and Gregory Boulevard in Nottingham, was purchased by the 6th Duke of Portland and donated to a committee established to provide long-term care for back and other paralysing injuries among ex-servicemen (see Pl E12/6/28/9/1-48). Medical operations and care were performed at the General Hospital in Nottingham. Within ten years of its foundation its initial constituency of patients began to disappear. It extended its functions to mining and other sources of injury, and was re-named 'Ellerslie House Home'. In 1948 it was placed in Nottingham No. 2 Hospital Group of the Regional Health Board, and continued its work into the 1960s.
Custodial HistoryThe papers were amongst the various transfers of hospital records made by the Nottinghamshire Area Health Authority (Teaching) South Nottingham District to the University of Nottingham in the 1970s.
