Mess 513 Posted December 15, 2022 Report Share Posted December 15, 2022 I have a vague recollection of being taken to the doctors by my mum in the 1950s and being given a prescription written in Latin. I think back then pharmacists were also versed in Latin so all was well although the long standing joke about being unable to decipher a doctor’s handwriting must have been compounded. For the record our GP back then was a Scottish lady doctor called Dr Kerr who had a surgery on Western Boulevard. She later moved on to be replaced by another lady doctor called Dr Grattidge.
