Lloyd George Boxes
In response to customer feedback, CAS provides tailor-made medical record storage boxes, also known as ‘Lloyd George’ storage boxes. CAS’s two ranges of archive boxes are specifically made for GP practices and other medical facilities who wish to find a solution to the problem of storing their patients’ records.
While the NHS has an overarching commitment to digitise its patient records, paper records still need to be kept, stored securely, and be readily accessible. These boxes are fully compliant with the recommendations of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for medical records storage. Should your practice be inspected by the CQC, using these Lloyd George boxes will allow you to demonstrate that you can access patient records quickly and efficiently.
Whether your GP practice is storing patient records on-site, or at any of our warehouses and taking advantage of our scan-on-demand service, we can supply Lloyd George boxes at a competitive price. We provide both premium and budget ranges. Our premium Lloyd George storage boxes come pre-assembled and are made from durable fibre board. They feature either a brass handle and ID label or an aluminium ID label. The budget range come flat-packed and are made from corrugated cardboard. You can view our selection of boxes below.

The hundred-year history of Lloyd George boxes
When he was Prime Minister over a hundred years ago, David Lloyd George introduced the National Insurance Act, the first time that many employees in the UK had consistent access to healthcare. Contributions from the employer and the government were added to a weekly amount taken from each employee and, in return for the record of contributions, that employee was entitled to medical care, as well as retirement and unemployment benefits. Lloyd George’s name survives in the archive boxes which are used to store most primary care records in England – although the medical system has obviously moved on with the introduction of the NHS in the 1940s, and medical records have become a lot more complicated and detailed.
