The Dow Surgery
In the 1920s Dr John Dow, brought up and trained in Scotland,
joined Dr Banks' practice in Redditch. At this time Redditch was a
small market town. He bought a house that became the Surgery,
and another Scottish doctor, Dr Mitchell, joined him.
Dr Dow's sister worked as a practice dispenser. Dr John Dow had
three sons, all of whom became doctors. Two of them, Tom and
Iain, joined the family practice, whilst Bill headed for Western
Whilst Redditch was developing as a "New Town", the practice was
obliged to move premises twice, but the doctors and staff (and
patients) stuck together. In 1991 Tom’s son, John, succeeded his
Father and Dr Iain retired shortly after. John’s sister now also works
in the practice. The practice moved to a new. Purpose-built
premises in 1995.
We enjoy working in a friendly atmosphere. Things are very different
from the time of the first Dr John, but we are keen to maintain a
family-based service, with a high quality of modern medical care.
