The Roxburghshire Nursing Association was established in Melrose in the years following 1914-18 and was a nursing service before the National Health Service came into being. There was a cottage hospital, but local GPs could also call upon the services of the nurses to aid new mothers and the dying in the surrounding areas. Nurses would live with the patients until new mothers were able to cope or follow the coffin of those who had died.
