The first Doctor that I can remember was Doctor Harrison Carr. His surgery was in a small bungalow at the east end of Hadleigh opposite the Salvation Army fields. In the back was a dispensary where he made up his own potions, cough mixtures, purges etc.
Next, Dr. James who lived in Hadleigh Hall and built a surgery on the west side, with a wooden bench around the waiting room. He was joined by Dr. McGladdery and later by Dr. Elliott who also opened a surgery in Thundersley Village. When The Hollies was taken over as the new surgery, Dr. John McGladdery joined the team and when he retired Dr. Lester took over with a new team.
