DEWAR REPORT CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS 1912-2012
Can you help us please?
2012 marks the centenary of the Dewar Commission and the publication of the Dewar Report into the provision of healthcare in remote and rural parts of Scotland. The report is of local significance as it led to the establishment of the Highlands and Islands Medical Service (HIMS), but also of worldwide significance as it was the first direct and principal forerunner of the NHS.
We are marking the centenary with a full programme of events across the region, and we would really appreciate your involvement.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of healthcare practitioners, historians and archivists with a common interest in celebrating this important centenary. The Royal College of General Practitioners has plans for some events, and we want to ensure as many as possible are locally curated and of local relevance and interest.
