A Significant Medical
the 60th anniversary of the NHS, it is worth reflecting on the proud
history of medical care and research in Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
Central to centuries of landmark achievements, the University of Glasgow's
Faculty of Medicine has been driving forward the nation's prowess
in medical science.
The University's contribution has been immense
in training the clinical staff who deliver care and the diligent
researchers who have developed the medical and surgical treatments
that have transformed the lives of every person alive today. This
has included the work of renowned physicians such as Joseph
Lister (antisepsis), George Beatson (breast cancer), John MacIntyre
(X-rays and radiology), William
Hunter (anatomy and obstetrics) and Ian
Donald (ultrasound) to name just a few.
When the NHS launched
in 1948, a natural partnership was created between the two and further
advances in health care were made.
