The Remarkable Elsie Inglis & the Scottish Women’s Hospital with Mr Iain Macintyre

Date(s): 6 October 2014

Time: 18.30

Cost: Free

Booking Link:


Elsie Inglis was 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.

This talk is part of the Midlothian Science Festival
