The Girton and Newnham Unit of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals during World War 1
When & Where
Elaine Morrison and Carol Parry - This hospital for Foreign Services worked in France and Serbia and is well documented in the library of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. Based initially in Troyes, France, this all-women Unit, working under the French Army, served briefly in Serbia and then established a large tented hospital in Salonica. Through the drive of its Chief Medical Officer, Glasgow graduate Dr. Louise McIlroy, the Unit had, by the end of the war, created an orthopaedic centre and dental department.
