Royal Northern Infirmary Staff, 1932

The Highlands and Islands Medical Service revolutionised care for more than 300,000 people on half the land mass of Scotland. Not only was primary care being delivered to all sections of the community but it was of a higher standard than much of the rest of Britain.


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.
