Receipt for Doctors Attendance, 1908

Medical attention had to be paid for and often there wasn't enough money to pay for the doctor's visit.

Theodore Campbell was factor and stalker at Patt, Loch Monar, Ross and Cromarty. At least three of his children were born at this remote settlement. As a member of the Scottish Landed Estates Friendly Society his medical bills were covered. His less fortunate neighbours may have used the Doctor's visit for an impromptu consultation.


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.
