GlasgowDukeStreetHospitalAlthough there are many complaints made nowadays about the level of service available from the National Health Service, it is difficult now to conceive of the conditions in previous centuries when access to medical aid was largely the province of the rich and powerful. The poor had to depend upon the charity of others, which tended to be sporadic and often meagre. Occasional support was on offer from the Glasgow's Town Council when finances allowed for this. Recourse was often made to the Kirk which tried to maintain its traditional role with regard to succouring the ailing and needy even after the Reformation left it with far less resources than before.
