Notes Kelso Dispensary was the first hospital in the town and only the second in Scotland (after the Edinburgh Royal Public Dispensary). The Kelso establishment was founded by the Earl of Haddington in 1777 and funded by benefactors and subscribers. Each subscriber could recommend two people who couldn't afford to see a doctor and they would receive free healthcare. This pamphlet provides a report on its activities in the 46th year of its existence.
