Iain Macintyre talks about Elsie Inglis  -  a remarkable woman doctor. She was a pioneer of medical education for women, a successful surgeon in Edinburgh and a leader of the Suffrage movement. But it was her work with the Scottish Women's Hospitals in the First World War which made her a national heroine. Her story, one of courage and determination, is one of the most inspiring to emerge from Scottish medicine.

In conjunction with The Royal College of Surgeons and University of Edinburgh exhibition ‘Words and Deeds: Women, Warfare and Caregiving’ in Central Library from 4th-9th August.
