Grants for the provision or improvement of housing for doctors and nurses were also provided.

The Halkirk Parish Medical Officer having resigned, after only ten months in post, over inadequate housing, a grant from the Highlands and Islands Medical Service Fund was deemed the only way to rectify the situation. This was put in place before the post was re-advertised.


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.
