The Life and Times of Reginald Grove, Victorian County Doctor: Peter Flowers
25 Year old Reginald Grove took over his father’s practice in St Ives in the 1890s. Drawing on Reginald’s diaries and letters, Peter Flower, his grandson, will describe, with lots of anecdotes, what it was like to be a country doctor, Medical Officer of Health and Medical Officer for the Workhouse in the horse-and-trap years before the First World War. Reginald continued in practice until his death in 1948, just as the NHS was being launched.
