The Belford Hospital also received HIMS funding, which prevented it having to close. In return for this the management committee agreed to widen its catchment area and give clear indication of the number of patients treated under this agreement.


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.
