The practice was founded in 1896 by Dr Walter Hadwen; who had moved from Highbridge in Somerset to Gloucester to open a doctor’s surgery in Barton Street.

Dr Hadwen was a qualified pharmacist who trained as a mature student at Bristol University Medical School, winning Gold Medals in Medicine and Surgery. He campaigned for many causes, becoming a city councillor and founding a church in Southgate Street in 1906 at which he preached and still exists today. He founded a convalescent home in Pitchcombe for his more ill patients. ‘Dr. Hadwen of Gloucester’ was also referred to as the ‘terrible and unanswerable Hadwen’ by George Bernard Shaw, the famous playwright. He once addressed a committee of the American Senate on the subject of Animal Vivisection. Loved and respected by his patients, stories of him were told at a centenary celebration in 1996 by some who were able to attend .

Great that there is a doctor who works not for profit but based on the best interest of the patient.
