An Dotair Mor

If you can, tune into BBC Alba on Monday 29 December at 22.00 for a programme, An Dotair Mor - The Big Doctor. It traces the work and times of Dr Alexander MacLeod and his his wife, Dr Julia MacLeod, on North Uist from 1932. In many ways it was a pioneering practice, with residents receiving care standards previously unavailable. The family's contribution to island life was remarkable, with their son, John, taking over and continuing to practise into the 21st Century. Full details are in a Stornoway Gazette item.
