Dr Nora Kathleen Woll
A well-rememberred and much loved GP.
By Neil Fortey
As a new comer to Bottesford, I joined the Woll surgery and learned that it is named after a remarkable lady who looked after her patients in and around Bottesford for many years. In 2004 the British Medical Journal published an obituary of Dr Woll, who passed on during May of that year. In addition to describing her early years in the British Army in India during the Second World War, and her subsequent training with Sir James Spence, it also states the remarkable strength and determination with which she dealt with the effects of major cranial surgery in 1956, and kept on working. She was ninety when she died.
