St. George the Martyr - Municipal ward of Dane John

Many of the houses on the North side of the street were damaged/destroyed in the bombing of WW2

William BALDOCK built about 26 houses at the upper end of St. George's Place on the left hand side of the road. William MOSS (of St. George's Street) and Thomas COOPER also built houses here.

St. George's Place (north side), in 1941. All (except a few buildings nearest the parked car) were burnt out in the June 1942 blitz. Between the wars, this side was popularly known as 'Doctor's Row', because of the sheer number of doctors who lived or practised here.

1882 Thomas Whitehead Reid

Surgeon at the Kent & Canterbury Hospital

*Canterbury, May 25th, 1880

Sir, both for the dignity of the profession, and the eventual good and moral training of the patient, I consider that the consultant should in all cases communicate with the ordinary medical attendant, whether the consultant be chosen by the patient with or without his approval. This is the only way in which the running about for promiscuous medical advice can possibly be restrained. It is as necessary for us to teach our patients how to behave as to secure the best and most successful treatment for their maladies, if we wish to make our profession what it ought to be.

I never think of receiving a patient under my care until I have ascertained all the previous course and treatment of the case; and if I find the patient is still under some one's supervision, I should not think of treating him continuously, except in concert with his former attendant. This is the only way in which we can behave fairly to one another or to our patients.

Difference of opinion are chiefly created by the patients themselves, or imply the keeping back of some essential part in the history of the case. To ignore the value of independent opinions is foolish; to assume omniscience is delusive.

If we do not behave fairly to one another, we damage our profession status and the estimation in which the public should hold us.

Yours faithfully,

T. Whitehead Reid
