Musical doctors

// 22 April 2005

The life of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first female doctor in the UK, is to be turned into a musical.

According to this local news story, it is to be funded by the Camden Central Partnership, which exists to promote social cohesion through the arts.

It’s being done by Rob Inglis, who has already done something similar with the life of Father Basil Jellicoe and his efforts on slum housing.

Inglis says the play will draw parallels between the plight of women doctors in the past, and how migrant doctors are treated today.
