The Dewar Committee Gathering Evidence, October 1912

During their travels the Committee members saw first-hand the problems described by the witnesses; tempestuous conditions were experienced crossing the Minch and one of them, J. L. Robertson, required emergency hospitalisation for appendicitis. He made a full recovery.


This image is part of an online exhibition marking the centenary of The Highlands and Islands Medical Services Committee, commonly referred to as the Dewar Committee after its chairman, Sir John Dewar MP. The Committee's report paved the way for the first state provided health service in the world, the Highlands and Islands Medical Service, which revolutionised medical provision and is considered to be the precursor to the National Health Service.
