Scotland & Medicine

Supported by the Scottish Executive and Scottish Museums Council, this packed and informative site is a gateway to exploring the history of medicine in Scotland. It's got up to date events listings as well as guides to the museums, galleries, libraries and archives where Scotland's role at the forefront of pills, potions, surgery, dentistry and health in general is recorded through artefacts, documents and exhibitions. Themed sections on the influence of medicine on Scottish culture and the Scots figures synonymous with pioneering medical practice also make it an interesting place to spend a few moments clicking.
